Scroll down to see photos of the walk
A clear track took us to . . .
a rocky outcrop . . .
on the way to . . .
Higger Tor . . .
where Sheila inspects . . .
the various rock formations . . .
and tries this one out for size
A very young lamb
North Lees Hall . . .
a sixteenth century tower house which is . . .
one of the buildings that inspired Charlotte Brontė to write about Thornfield in Jane Eyre . . .
and which is now available for holiday accommodation . . .
with great views over the surrounding countryside
Stanage Edge comes into view . . .
and information boards . . .
Nearing Stanage Edge . . .
our route lies through woodland
A closer view of the rocky edge . . .
as we make our way along a snowy path . . .
Zooming in on High Neb . . .
but we turned around before we reached it . . .
and checked out more rocks . . .
and took a gradually descending path . . .
with a last view of the rocks
Three large boulders . . .
provide the perfect spot for lunch . . .
and our return route runs parallel with the Edge . . .
where a couple of rock climbers can be seen
