A fairly challenging walk including a couple of quite steep climbs, one along a narrow scree path traversing the side of the hill. Though rewarding with some expansive views from the two high points on the walk, it is spoilt perhaps by commercial quarry activity along Long Rake (a natural rock fissure) along the top of Longstone Edge. Great Longstone, the central point of the walk, has two pubs, both Robinson's houses. On this walk we frequented The Crispin, which has recently been refurbished (muddy boots are frowned upon); they offer a reasonable menu and some interesting real ales. The return is less challenging once the climb to Longstone Moor (the highest point on the walk) is behind you, as you are now at the head of the valley crossed on the first part of the walk and most of the return walk is fairly level field-walking.

Really enjoyable walk. Got a little lost, due to the description of point 13 being out of date. There is no longer a vehicle barrier crossing the road. The only thing left of the barrier is the metal base which is hidden behind a tree stump. There is a bench on the right and the turning is just on the left, a few metres further on.
