Weekly Walk for Fitness and Navigation Training

Cold day on the Roaches. Weekly walk to test my navigation for a Pinnacle Walking Holiday

I always try to get out of the house and go on at least one weekly walk, usually with a couple of friends, Paul and Glenn. It’s a good way to keep up the fitness and helps with my navigation skills. I would not like to get any guests lost on our Pinnacle Walking Holidays.

Last week we walked from Danebridge on to the Roaches. We all agreed that it was one of the coldest days that we could remember for a long time. We took the route up to the Hanging Stone then to Bearstone Rocks before taking the path across the Roaches.

The visibility was pretty poor and there was a biting wind. Not a day for hanging about. There were however some fantastic photo opportunities because there was a hoar frost which made the plants and trees look pretty spectacular.

After a quick lunch break near Hen Cloud we headed back to the warmth of the car.

We are heading over to Dale End Barn for our next weekly walk; this is where we host our all-inclusive Peak District short walking breaks. We are meeting up with another Paul, who owns the Barn, and we are heading in to Lathkill Dale. Let’s hope it’s not as cold on our next weekly walk.
