You're right, a bit hasty of me and I apologise to the host.
There are plenty of strolls around Castleton should people want to
extend the walk. Cave Dale and the castle being just one of them.

Once again, apologies to Daz and fair play to you for getting it organised.

Meant to quote this post.


To the bloke above me saying 3 miles is rediculous. give the host a break ! Join him and make suggestions by all means but don't not come just because he's suggested , not set in stone, 3 miles ( 6 in all ) .

I recently did a harsh 13.1 miles saddleworth morr walk ( some peat bog) from Dovestone, greenfield. Oldham (yes it comes under Peak District) It was a great dayout with people I have walked with from a walkingforum. Before that we did a 9 mile walk from near Fairholme, Ladybower, we went to Alprt Castle


Sounds good.
Alport Castles is well worth a visit, it is in fact the uk's largest landslide and
used to be a place of secret worship.
Another good and interesting walk in that vicinity is across Bleaklow from
the Snake Pass following the Pennine way for a short distance, then heading
off west towards the Wain Stones where you can still see the wreckage of
an American B29 which crashed in 1949 killing all crew.
There are in fact 55 crash sites in the Dark Peak area although few of them
still have remains of the aircraft scattered around as this site does.

Secret worship of what?


It was used by a group of non-conformists in the 17th century to
worship in secret and escape persecution.
They used a stone barn for their worship but had to have look outs
watching for any signs of approaching kings soldiers.
In fact every first Sunday of July a ceremony is held there, hymns
are sung and water is passed round in a two handled cup.
Alport Castles Farm is also the birthplace of Hannah Mitchell, 1871.
She was of the six women to form the Women's Social and Political
Movement, later to be know as the suffragettes.

nothing saying once we get to Castleton we take stock, and should all be willing, we could march up Winnat's Pass


Nobody 'marches' up the Winnat's.
But if you do stroll up there, turn lef at the top, follow a path for about
half a mile, left again into Cave Dale, then back down into Castleton.

A great walk taking in two very impressive gorges.

Hi
I attended the walk today & had a really good time. It was a pity you missed it. I look forward to another walk & meeting up with the people I've met today.
Take care, Lorraine
