Grindleford/Burbage Rocks/Longshaw (circular) - Derbyshire (Peak District) - 17/08/17 - 8.5 Miles

Higger Tor viewpoint in the picture. Started off again with 10kg (19lbs) of sand in the rucksack, but decided this is a nonsense thing to do, as it is merely making any walk a miserable trudge. Therefore the sand was deposited about a third of the way along in an appropriate place. However having just completed reading a WALK IN THE WOODS where they were carrying 40lbs in their rucksacks on the Appalachian Trail, I guess I won't be doing that anytime soon.

Chesterfield (Trans-Pennine Trail) Circular - Derbyshire - 11/08/17 - 10 Miles Run/Walk

This curly thing (I mean piece of artwork) is just across from Chesterfield station.

Beeley / Chatsworth (circular) - Derbyshire (Peak District) - 30/07/17 - 5.5 Miles - Helen (Molly)

Picture of Chatsworth (as you can see) but not from this particular walk (caught out without my camera again). Anyway we stopped in the courtyard and had a cup of tea and hot chocolate for the bargain price of £4.50

Birchen Edge (circular) - Derbyshire (Peak District) - 23/07/17 - 4.25 Miles - Helen (Molly, couple of other people, and a couple of other dogs)

Picture taken from a previous walk (rather than the one in question) mainly because I didn't have my camera, which is a bit too complicated to go into. Anyway just imagine the vegetation a little more rampant and you're there (oh and I would have had my fleece off at this point as well).

Grindleford/Burbage Rocks/Longshaw (circular) - Derbyshire (Peak District) - 06/07/17 - 8.5 Miles (+ add 10kg in Rucksack)

This is my lunch atop of Higger Tor. This was an exercise walk as opposed to a ramble, and therefore as this blog is primarily a diary/record, such exercise walks in future will also have just one lunch photo. For the record lugging that additional 10kg in the rucksack all the way up from Grindleford station to Higger Tor, was harder than the recent walk up Snowdon. That is of course the idea.

Birchen Edge (circular) - Derbyshire (Peak District) - 02/07/17 - 4.25 Miles (add. 10kg Rucksack)

Whooa it's Nelson's Monument again.
Looking back on the path just trodden.
The 10kg of sand in my rucksack was getting heavy, so I stopped for a snack at the Wellington Monumnet.
