After Brown Gnoll, which felt more like a traditional peak's peak, Lord's Seat is a bit weird. For starters the path feels more like a road and in fact just down the far side you can see car's driving by! Not exactly getting away from it allAltheus15/08/2018

I have been meaning to do this for a while. Great walk across the ridge. Sat and had lunch looking down on Barber Booth. Great views of the back side of Kinder.W111KYB16/08/2015
16/08/15 start of a 4hr OMM sunday training run with Rob & L from Mam Nick. In 2014 a big protest was stirred up among walkers, mountain bikers, runners when the council tried to resurface the old bridleway up Chapel Gate. The edge is popular take off spot when a southerly wind is blowing for paragliders. The training costs £750 + and then £2000 - £4000 you would pay for a hangglider or paraglider canopy, and £400 for personal equipment. The loose shales have led to slumping on the north slope.Chris Pearson16/08/2015
