Stanage Edge

January 20th 2014
  • Providing a geological treat for all, and a very popular stop for walkers and climbers alike, the imposing Stanage Edge stands as a stalwart constant in the Peak District’s ever-shifting landscape.

    Compromising a near four mile stretch along the border of Derbyshire and South Yorkshire, the rise was once traced by a Roman road, the remains of which can still be witnessed on your way to the top. The scene that unfolds from the apex is one of magnificent moorland and expansive sky, perfect for looking out to the horizon and taking a picture or two.

    A short while away, the equally admirable Mam Tor makes a great spot to round out the day.
