Edale to Alport Castles

Edale – The Nab – Ringing Roger – Crookstone Knoll – Alport Castles – Jagger’s Clough – Ollerbrook – Edale

An epic full day circular trek connecting the Vale of Edale to the Alport Valley via Kinder Scout and surrounding woodlands. We start the walk from Edale train station at 07:30. You can either drive and meet us there or catch a train from Manchester Piccadilly at 06:40, arriving in Edale at 07:26. As we start in pitch black, you will need to bring a torch (ideally a headtorch), wear warm layered clothing including waterproofs and either walking boots or shoes. You’ll also need to bring your own drinking water, perhaps some breakfast snacks (pastries or cereal are ideal) and a flask of something hot for when we stop to enjoy the sunrise view around 08:15. We should arrive back in Edale around 15:30
