Route approximately 20Km.VirtualMountain13/05/2015
Nice windy afternoon out on the paved path from Snake Pass - left the path for Featherbed Top then down to Mill Hill, before turning back over the road and heading off across the peat to Higher Shelf Stones. Decided to leave Bleaklow Head for a day when I have time to get across to Alport Moor too :) Caution needed when leaving toward the west - it's on a bit of a blind crest and the layby is angled away from the road, anyone going much above the limit (and there are a few!) will struggle to slow down for youthe_adam30/03/2015
