Low Bradfield Walk 7 July 2013

Low Bradfield Walk 7 July 2013

Nine non-armchair sports fans decided to brave the fine weather and head for the hills, starting in Low Bradfield, an attractive village near Sheffield, we walked along Dale dyke reservoir that burst it's dam in 1864 killing 244 people.

 Then on up to Back Tor where most of the photos were taken for lunch and welcome shade from the sun (remember it) with great views of Derwent edge, from here the path is paved to prevent errosion along Cartledge Stones Ridge and then Dukes road.

A  visit to the Old Horns pub in High Bradfield meant a final climb to be rewarded by a very welcome drink, then down to the sound of leather thwacking on willow at the cricket match in Low Bradfield.
