11th: Sunday walk
With good weather booked as usual by the leader, 12 of us met at Torky Park to proceed to Monyash. Over the last few months we have done many a walk in Lathkill Dale, so our leader instructed us to go the other way. We did a bit of Limestone Way and joined the druids at Arbor Low, a bit of chanting had been done the previous night to guarantee the weather, no sacrifices required at the alter stone just coffeee and sleep 1.
Set off across to Parsley Hey where tea was available, ice creams, and toilets. Along the High Peak Trail to the PUB and sleep 2
A leisurely hour at the pub stop, very nice beer well recomended, our resident beer guide knew name, brew, way to bar (something of a challenge for the future as he seems to have a wikpedia knowledge of all pubs in the North of England, despite having a slightly suspect accent.
A bit of uphill then followed to Flagg, rejoining the Limestone Way back to Monyash.
All together 10.6 miles, slightly longer than the leader designed, with unbroken sun, slight breeze, and the normal excellent company.
