D Walk – Edale
August 11 @ 10:30 am
This is an easy walk (approximately 5 miles) from Barber Booth, staying in the valley and picking up the Trans Pennine trail into the top end of Edale village. We will walk through the village and then across the main road to circle back towards Barber Booth. Good views and reasonable paths.
From Brabyns head to New Mills, right at the mini roundabout and right at the next lights. Then a sharp left at the lights onto the A6. Follow the bypass and take the slip road signed Chapel, Edale, Rushup and turn left at the end. About 3.7 miles along this road there is a sign on your right to Edale. Turn left here and follow this winding road downhill. As the road starts to level there is a sign on your right to Barber Booth. Turn left here onto a narrow road following it under the bridges to a layby on your left where we will be parking.
The route is approximately 15.7 miles from Marple and takes about 40 mins.
5 miles, moderate
