Win Hill - March 10th

Post  Admin on Mon Jan 21, 2013 8:56 am

Sunday 21st October - Win Hill
A 7.5 mile walk which to start with takes us around the edge of Ladybower Dam before ascending through the woods to the gentle ridge of Thornhill Bank and then on to Win Hill to enjoy some spectacular views. 650 metres of ascent on this walk which should take about 4.5 hours to complete.

Details:-
Meet at the car park (the one with the loos!) which is situated on the left on th A6013 about 200 yards past the bridge coming from the Sheffield direction. Please be there at 10.00 ready for a 10.15 start.

Whenever we've done this walk in the past, people have found it difficult to find the car park where we meet. Basically as you come down the A57 from Sheffield you pass the Ladybower Inn on the right. Immediately after the pub you arrive at some traffic lights and the Ladybower Dam up in front on the left. Straight ahead takes you on to the Snake Pass, but you need to turn left here to cross the bridge in the direction of Bamford. After crossing the bridge the road bends to the right and about 200 yards further on the car park is on the left. I hope this helps!

Lovely walk and some great snowy views of the Vale of Edale today. A bit windy 'up top' but not really cold at all, I've known worse!

A big well done to everybody who came, I hope you enjoyed the walk too.

A lovely walk today. The area around Ladybower and Winhill is beautiful whatever time of the year we walk it, but it looked magical today with its snow covering.

The views from on high were great, and looked liked a black and white photo.
