The Peak District, Guided Scenic Walk Black Hill to Crowden Clough June 2013

On 2nd June at 9:30am we have another of our fabulous fun, scenic, guided walks and this time it is in the Peak District between Black Hill to Crowden Clough.
This is another of our famously idyllic fully guided UK walks which we at Social Circle do so well and are becoming quite well-known for!!

The walk suits most people and is not too tiring so there is no need to be an athlete, however, due to the duration stamina is required (again not to any
athletic proportions).



A quick run down of the distance, duration and difficulty:

Difficulty: 4 (steep descent, some ascents, may be boggy)

Distance: 10 miles

Duration: 4h excluding stops (we estimated this will be a full 5 hour walk INCLUDING breaks).
Black Hill is the third and the northernmost of the gritstone and peat plateau hills so characteristic for the Dark Peak area. It’s lower than Bleaklow and Kinder but as boggy, dark and weather-beaten.

Pennine Way passes across Black Hill, traversing from Crowden in the Longendale valley to Wessenden and Standedge to the north and we will use it in our ascent of the hill. black5

The southern part of the path near Crowden also goes past Laddow Rocks, one of the places where Peak District rock-climbing was born and rock climbers can often be seen here in summer.

After the walk we’ll drive to Tintwistle for a well deserved pint and roast at the Bull’s Head.
RECOMMENDED KIT (optional): hat, warm clothes, waterproof jacket and trousers, walking trousers walking boots as may be slippy tea flask.
