The start of the walk looking over Curbar and a good vantage point to admire the scenery

The walk along Curbar Edge gives some fantastic viewpoints and some dramatic cliff edges

Dramatic rock formations litter the skyline and give dramatic views from above and below.

More views looking south from Curbar Edge.

Cotton Grass prevalent on the moorland area

Just admiring the view

Having traversed both Curbar and Froggatt Edge we descended through Hay Wood to eventually reach the River Derwent.

This brook formed by the water draining from Big Moor which sits behind Froggatt Edge

The sensible place to rest, sheltered under the trees. With a coat like that I think they would be very warm wherever they were, particularly on a day like today

Passing through the wooded area near the River Derwent. The leaf cover providing us with some welcome shelter from the warm sunshine

Reaching the river which we followed for a mile or so. This walk provided quite an interesting contrast in the terrain and scenery

Returning to the start of the walk and Warren Lodge sits in an elevated position overlooking the valley

Thanks for visiting....
