    Me and Shirl have been discussing organising a walk in the countryside this summer - perhaps the Peak District as that is relatively central.

    Is anyone interested in coming along?

    Camping fiends can sleep in a field full of sheep shit if they so desire. :thumbs:

    How far's the walk?

    More importantly how many pubs are on the route?

    To be confirmed - but for a proper country walk it'd have to be around ten miles I think.

    The route can be chosen based on pub locations. :)

    Lily and I will both need rickshaw assistance.

    Sadly I'm more then likely to be busy when everyone else is free, but if it ends up being a date I can make, I'll certainly come along, I'm pretty local and know the Peak fairly well.

    I would be up for this date dependent though. I shall watch the thread. 10 miles is a nice walk length. :cool:

    Ah thank you. I very much enjoyed your very generous whistle stop tour of Manchester that time. ;) This sounds fun. I'd also like to meet Shirl too. :)

    Shirl is a bit of a wrong 'un - she caused so much aggro today in Manchester. :(

    If I can't make it happy to suggest routes...Doing part of the Edale Skyline is always a favorite for me if I'm showing people the area and there is a station and two good pubs.

    The Mam Tor ridge is a brilliant walk, as is Kinder. :cool:

    Sorry, its sub judice prior to the prosecution, so I can't disclose any information for fear of Shirl getting away with what she did today. :(

    You know that bit of Mam Tor that's closed because it's so dangerous?

    In the 1970s we went on a school trip which involved climbing (i.e. scrambling up) that very same bit of Mam Tor. I had to be rescued :cool:

    We went up the bottom of it, as it were, on a field trip at sixth form - an impressive landslip. :)

    The broken road? When I did care work Id sometimes take kids there and let them slide down the screes.

    Think it's safe enough on foot tbf.

    Mam tor is fine on foot. The road only slid away very slowly over months and years. After numerous attempts to repair it, they gave up at the arse end of the seventies.

    And yes it's a beautiful part of the world. Hope your calf muscles are up to it

    Ten miles is into committed rather than leisurely, I think, but doable nonetheless. I'm hesitant to say I can make anything at the moment but in principle I'm interested.

    I've done a circular walk from Edale station - heading up to the ridge at the far end (where it joins the fellside that links to Kinder Scout), along the ridge until it terminates at the far end and then back to Edale. I think that was around 11.5 miles, and easily doable in a day.

    I think there should be an option for those of a lesser constitution to bale out at, say, half distance.

    I'm asking for Lily, obvs.
