Bleaklow Sunset

Glossop – Lightside – Higher Shelf Stones – Lower Shelf Stones – James’s Thorn – Old Glossop

A midsummer evening trek into the remote wilderness of Bleaklow with the largest business development organisation in the North West, Pro Manchester.

We will climb the steep banks of Lightside, heading towards the hulking, intimidating moorland expanse of Bleaklow. Then, veer off towards Higher Shelf Stones to reach the wreckage of the B29 superfortress bomber, overexposed.

We’ll then drop off Lower Shelf Stones via James’s Thorn back into Old Glossop, perhaps for a quick drink in a pub before heading home.
