Hayfield - Tunstead Clough - Stoney Ford - Edale Cross - Coldwell Clough - Hayfield

This walk hardly goes on to the heights of Kinder Scout but the hills are always there, overshadowing the walk. Edale Cross itself may not be as old as it looks, dating back perhaps to 1610, but it is a landmark on the old pack-horse track from Hayfield to Edale. This walk is well-served by facilities; there are cafes and pubs in Hayfield. Toilets are available at the bus station in Hayfield and at Bowden Bridge.

10/7/2020 - Simon Worrall

Walked October 2020. A really pleasant walk that has just enough uphill to make you feel as though you have been on a decent walk! Super views all round as you leave Hayfield and head out onto the fields and moorland. Don't be tempted to miss out on the short section up to Edale Cross - once you reach this ancient monument the views open out towards Buxton and the wider Peak District along with views out to the west coast and Kinder Scout in other directions. Also, worth a quick visit to the Memorial Garden in Hayfield which you pass on Market Street as you start (and finish) the walk - great view of the river weir with several benches to sit on. NAVIGATION - Very good walking instructions so had no navigation issues at all. NOTE FOR THOSE WALKING WITH DOGS: Cattle encountered in fields between WP 10 and 12 and also between WP23 and 24. Sheep also in fields beyond WP12 on the moorland. NOTE: Stone bench just before gate at WP22 has views back to the fields (between WP10 and 13) you walked earlier on the other side of the river valley and is a pleasant place to stop on return leg of the walk. PARKING - there's plenty of free on street parking around the start point near the Packhorse public house (no longer a hotel).
