Sunday 19th May ..Three Dales Walk..Sue
Meet at Millers Dale Old Station car park SK17 8SN for a 10.30 start. Car park charge: £4.50 all day and there are public conveniences. Our walk takes us briefly into the village of Millers Dale, before we get up onto the Limestone Way and the Pennine Bridleway. The pavement is quite narrow in the village, and the road is busy, so walk with care. We then walk to the village of Wheston, where we pick up a quiet road that takes us to the start of Hay Dale, where there is a good path. When we reccied it recently, there was an abundance of cowslips and early purple orchids - nice place for a lunch stop! We continue into Peter Dale, which has slightly different terrain and features. It can be quite muddy in places after rain. Our final Dale is Monk’s Dale which is a different experience altogether. Walking here can be a little bit tricky, as the limestone paths are uneven and sometimes slippery. It is a lovely walk, though, through moss covered trees, rocks and walls, so well worth it. Back at the station, the cafe is open until 5pm for refreshments. There is some road walking on this walk, but there is very little traffic on them and there are a couple of uphills, but they are not overly strenuous. PS...7 miles and bring poles if you have them Sue 0770 698 2602
