I'd like to join you, I'm not altogether sure I've done this before.
Chris can I please have a lift?  If you are driving Rivelin Valley way then I could meet you somewhere on Rivelin Valley Road.  If you're not going that way just give me a time and a place.  I'll message you my number if I can remember how to do it   scratch

Done it   Very Happy

I can't begin to understand how big a climb 400m is? So I'm prepared psychologically, how tough is this walk on a scale of 1-5? Is it a lovely little potter?

The 400 metres is a slow gradule climb Wink . Depends what you mean by a little potter, but on a scale of 1-5, 1 being the hardest i'll go for a split decision 2.5. Laughing

Can you remember the Alport Castles walk Anne? Starting from Fairholmes, and then going up to Alport Castles area, down the other side, and then the 2 separate climbs after that totals 600 metres. This must mean that Sundays walk is easier than Alport Castles!

Steve my memory isn't the best, I remember a debate about birds of prey near Alport Castles at lunchtime (I think) and it was a nice walk.
Thank you both for you help. I'll take it as - it will be fairly strenuous but beautiful

My knee just isn't up to climbing at the moment, so it would be pointless me even trying this type of walk. Pity, cos I've never walked Kinder, there always seems to be some reason I can't get!

Please add me to the list. I'm hoping that I'm fit enough to do it and that it is really only 9.3 miles. Linda R.

Glad you enjoyed the walk as much as me and Anne did, when we saw you all running we thought we'd not walked you far enough, but as you said its easier to run than walk down a hill. How lucky we were to have such lovely weather with views stretching as far away as Manchester. Hayfield is a lovely place didn't realise that the BBC had filmed the program The Village there. Thanks for every ones great company rounded off nicely with a well earned drink in the George.

Lovely little stroll. A little further than the 9.3 expected - must remember to check Roberts smiley faces. Views were fantastic and so lucky with the weather. Not so lucky with traffic and diversion on the way back, thanks ever so much for the lift Chris
