Murvi Motorvan AGM Weekend Walk - March 2016

Kinder Edge via Ringing Roger - Mar 2016

We joined with the Owners' Club for our Murvi Motorvan at the AGM Meet in Hope, nr Castleton, Derbyshire. For us, this is a relatively close rally!

A menagerie of Murvi motorvan's!

Three of us took advantage of the location and a glorious day to walk up onto Kinder Edge.
In order to maximise walking on the fells, I chose to take the train from where we were camping at Hope west to Edale - just the one stop.

The train from Sheffield, calling in at Hope - just one stop to Edale

Setting off uphill from Grindsbrook Booth - and yes, it's gets steeper!

Looking south across the Edale Valley to Mam Tor and the distinctive Mam Nick

Missy joined us on the walk!

Three of us at Ringing Roger Rocks - 550m, 1804ft

Alternative 'Shefield' this way

Looking up at Win Hill - 462m,1516ft

Finally back at Hope Station - watching the Manchester train head onto Sheffield

On a lovely day, we covered a total of 9 miles and 1863ft of climb.
