An evening walk up Grindsbrook Clough to reach the Kinder Plateau
Distance: 8.5km; Ascent: 410m; Dry, but breezy on the edge; Solo
Following Lynsey's walk up Grindsbrook Clough last week, I realised that it was well over 3 years since I had last walked up onto Kinder Scout that way so I decided to head that way this evening. The Edale car park was pretty much deserted as I set off walking shortly after 7:30pm and headed up through the village, past the The Old Nags Head and out into the countryside.
