13k circuit from Abney via Bretton Clough, following Country Walking route, except diverted on to glider field through gate at 182792 and another at 180793 and back on to Access Land the same way. No gliders flying and no obstructions. KeithByTheC25/03/2019
From the E taking the field gate route. Fine views, fine weather, gliders overhead.RichardM08/01/2019

Parking: (Durham Edge and Shatton Edge) Roadside, Abney village SK 19857 79877.David Evans29/01/2018
Parked in Abney then up very narrow minor road to Robin Hood's Cross before heading NW on track then moorland to summit. Back to RHC then WSW on track to gate allowing access to moorland to aim for Abney Moor trig and Durham Edge Tump with no gliders flying today.Dugswell206/01/2018

Bagged after Shatton Edge from the North.Alan Caine18/08/2017
Drove up Brough Lane (Byway) in a Seat Alhambra, parked at SK 18407 80269 and sort of followed ridge. Not the easiest way upDC11main08/07/2017
4.8 mile walk from east side of Abney (space for one car near signpost), walked along road through Abney and onto Abney Moor, cut across grassy moors towards Durham Edge trig, climbed over drystone wall into private land (gate has barbed wire on but wall is easy to climb by gate) and followed trigbaggers path through gate into next field to summit, back across to access land, then followed good paths to Shatton Edge, bagged heathery summit back along paths to car. Saw two herds of deer on the moors between the two hills. Overcast weather, re-bagged Mam Tor and bagged Slitherstone Hill, Eldon Hill and Bradwell Moor earlier that day in showery weather.DanTrig27/04/2017
A splendid run from Abney (easy parking) with great views and on perfect grassy paths for much of the way, taking in Shatton Edge first. No wall climbing required to get to the Durham Edge trig, though I had a few ups and downs before I found the way. So the sensible way is: up from the BOAT to the wall on Bleak Knoll, go past the stile to the barbed wire covered gate, and squeeze through the gap between it and the wall. Go W across the field, on flat ground below the hill and there's a gateway, Follow the wall up SE and there's the trig. Easy peasy.Gill04/02/2017
As David Gradwell. Note that the top rail of the first gate is covered with barbed wire. The summit is now higher as a consequence of a giant mole hill in the exact location of the high point a few metres from the trig point. Therefore, does this invalidate previous ascents on the basis that the summit is now higher? Not man made!Campbell Singer17/01/2017
After Shatton Edge. Buzzed by several gliders . Make circuit by taking path across moor to Abney Grange.Mark Sims12/03/2016
The road to the north is a byway open to all traffic and, as such, is driveable as far as need be. It is possible to park on the verge beside the wall leading along the summit ridge (alt 1227ft). Severe wall needs to be climbed in order to reach the trig, but a smout hole is located in the wall which it is possible to scramble through.moorsman29/01/2016
2/8 Second of eight (Lees Moor/Durham Edge/Shatton Edge/Bradwell Moor/Hind Low/Chrome Hill/Hollins Hill/Booth Hill)Fergalh24/01/2016
2nd of four hills today starting from Bamford. Climbed Shatton edge then veered off track to walk alongside wall on Bleak Knoll using gate to walk upto trig but wall is pretty precarious so wslked to intersection of fences and crawled under sheep access point; an easy amble then to trig and summit with great views into the Hope valley. Climbed over two fences and continued adventure by traversing Abney moor to reach lane at intersection of access land just Sw of Abney.Dazingdale28/09/2015
From minor lane to NNE, followed wall on E side over Bleak Knoll, ignored stile, went through gate beyond. Crossed field to another gate, up L to summit.Aye Jimmy09/09/2014
Followed David Gradwell's route 2013. Note that fences have to be crossed to get up Bleak Knoll. These can be avoided by ignoring Bleak Knoll & continuing on path to SK184797. Lots of gliders above on a lovely sunny day.citygent21/05/2014
Parked at end of minor road at SK 18970 80188. Shatton Edge, Bleak Knoll & Durham Edge from same parking spot. Walked west along track then over stile and straight up to ridge wall on Bleak Knoll. Followed wall passing a ladder stile then a little further on hopped over gate at SK 18238 79545. Walked across sheep pasture to second gate at SK 18015 79490. Easy short ascent to summit from this gate without climbing any walls. Highest point grass mound 6m SE of trig at SK 18049 79423.David Gradwell15/12/2013

As part of the Dark Peak summits list, after Shatton Edge. Followed the track along, then bushwhacked to the summit, avoiding gliders. Down to Bradwell via a short detour to Rebellion Knoll.DanHolme08/10/2007
