Kinder Scout Solo Walk…

With the prospect of a Saturday with no walking partners I took the opportunity to use the excellent Derbyshire Wayfarer bus/train ticket, allowing virtually unlimited bus and train travel throughout Derbyshire for a whole day, all for the bargain price of £12.40. On this occasion I took the 7.21am from Derby to Sheffield and then the 8.14am to Edale, finally arriving at 8.40am.  With plenty of trains available for my return journey from Edale (1 every hour) I set of for a leisurely walk without any distractions from my usual companions. The route was pretty much the standard circular walk from Edale up to the summit of Kinder Scout via Jacobs Ladder and returning via Grindslow Knoll stopping off at the Old Nags Head for a quick pint before catching the 13.33pm train back to Sheffield.
