Spectacular countryside

The Peak district is beautiful and well worth a visit, in Spring Summer Autumn or Winter there are plentiful rambles and walks.

A good walk with misty views. Starting point: Stanage Edge car park. Easy to follow paths even in the foggy weather. Only a handful of walkers on the route - I'd imagine there would have been more if the weather had been warmer. Waterproofs, gloves and sturdy walking boots made the walk more comfortable.

We headed over to Stanage for a run. My first time there for a long time and many more years since I had climbed there. We decided to stick close to the edge and test our rock hopping skills as well as our fear of heights. It was a cloudy cold day but there were people walking, running, cycling and... More

Not our first visit to Stanage a Edge. Superb views over the Peak District, a wonderful walk, the children loved jumping from rock to rock.

Got there so quickly from the centre of Sheffield. Easy parking even on a Saturday. The walk was far enough to be a walk but easy enough to get some great Panoramic views with some stunning craggy outcrops. You can see the history with some stretched carvings in the rock from decades ago. Great place with great views. Plus the... More

The walk up from Hathersage is fairly gentle and easy to follow. Having gone left to High Neb or a little further, retrace your steps along the edge and choose your descent from several tracks down to vary the length of walk and return route to town. Make a shorter circuit by driving up to one of the 3 car... More

Lots of walks here with stunning views, not for the faint hearted, great walks for families but big drops, of course

Try to be there at this place during dusk or dawn! The scene is just fabulous. We reached during sunset and it was breathtaking. An easy climb to the top and then one can walk over the rocks for a good hike!

First visit here in so many years of passing it by and I wasn't disappointed. Beautifully clear yet cold January 2nd. Parking was a bit of an issue being a bank holiday but so long as you're sensible and don't mind a bit of road walking it's reasonably accessible. On a clear day there are views for miles around, on... More

You can park much closer to Stanage edge and you do not need to start in Hathersage. My walk was 17km long and I went clockwise and followed the crest of Stanage Edge to Cowper Stones to Upper Burbage Bridge. You will see that I had to back track from my descent starting at Burbage Bridge because the trees had... More
