Froggatt Edge Round Walk

We had a local walk today around Curbar, Curbar Edge, Froggatt Edge, Grindleford and back to Froggatt. The whole route for a Froggatt Edge round walk is about 12.5km, just enough when the sun’s trying to break through the cloud and there’s a reasonable ascent […]

Ladybower Reservoir in Spring
