Peak District Walking Weekender
4th - 6th April 2014
Hayfield, Peak District

Great weekend at Hayfield, with 14 people for our first Walking Weekender of 2014. 

Met up on Friday night at the Royal Hotel at Hayfield (great pub, by the way). Saturday, we split into two groups and headed up onto Kinder Scout. Lunch at Kinder Downfall, then we headed off up to Kinder Gates then across the peat hags and groughs for a bit of a navigation challenge. Headed down off Kinder Low via the Three Knolls and Bowden Bridge. 

Sunday, we did an easier walk to Birch Vale then up onto the fantastic viewpoint of Lantern Pike before dropping down for a drink at the Lantern Pike Inn.

Thanks everyone for a great weekend.
