Beautiful Light on Stanage Edge

Beautiful Light on Stanage Edge

Stanage Edge is one of the best known gritstone edges in the Peak District and is therefore very popular with visitors. This popularity is due to Stanage Edge’s impressive views into the Hope Valley, across the Peak District to Mam Tor and glimpses of the Upper Derwent Valley reservoir complex at its north end. In addition to this, despite its undulations the walk doesn’t present too many obstacles to inexperienced walkers, so long as they are properly attired. The edge is often very windy, with weather conditions changing from minute to minute, even in summer.

Being close to Sheffield the edge is often very busy, especially at weekends.

That’s why we chose to walk the edge last Friday and because of the changeable weather were rewarded with some great images. During the walk from the south trig point to just north of the north trig point at High Neb the light was changing constantly. It was only as we reach half way back to our starting point that the weather closed in. Even then the rain added to the what turned into a great walk and a marvellous afternoon for photography.
