A night time walk up Mount Famine, South Head and Brown Knoll on the western edge of the Peak District under clear skies and an almost full moon.
Distance: 12.5km; Ascent: 570m; Dry with light winds; with Colin
Colin and I had been planning an evening walk in the Peak District for a while now but never quite got around to it. However this evening's weather was forecast to be near perfect (clear skies with light winds) so we arranged to go for a walk into the hills from Bowden Bridge car park near Hayfield. We set off walking at around 8:30pm and followed footpaths up to join the Pennine Bridleway. We gradually ascended under clear skies with a fantastic number of stars on display to reach the summit of Mount Famine (TuMP), via a slightly convoluted route to avoid the barbed wire fence!
