Saturday 14th April 2012:
I love this time of year! After an overnight stay at the quiet Waterside Campsite, Edale surrounded by frolicking, bleating lambs, and amusing cockerels and hens (plus the camp’s wildcat), I awoke to blue skies though a tad chilly. After a leisurely brew and breakfast I packed up and drove into Edale to park up near the train station before setting off toward Mam Tor and the Hollins Cross ridge. The easy to follow bridal path led me through Hardenclough Farm and met up with the mountain bike trail over a steady ascent to Hollins Cross. The weather still remained clear though toward the Horizon it was clouding. The trail up was quiet apart from the odd mountain biker but as soon as I got to Hollins Cross there were a lot of people on the ridge leading to both Ward’s Piece to the East & also toward Mam Tor.
