We walked up to the summit of Mam Tor today. Some of the images from that short walk are below. Beautiful as they are don;t be fooled into thinking you can trot up there at a moment’s notice.
Today for example the wind was up to 75mph, enough to sweep you off your feet so we had to take care and kept away from the dangerous embankments. Particularly the huge landslip on the southeast side! temperatures were down to -3 degrees celcius, much lower with wind chill. Then there’s the snow, it may look like candy floss but it’s tiring to walk through and can hide uneven ground that will turn your ankle, ice or pools of bitterly cold water. We were of course properly kitted out, layered up and took it slowly. Unlike one young man who decided to make the trip to the top in deck shoes and without a hat, scarf or gloves.
Hope you enjoy the images.
