Tideswell and eight High Peak dales, 22nd May 2017

Paul led this excellent walk last year (from Taddington) but the three of us decided it was so good we would have to make it compulsory this year.  So ten VBR and four Rushcliffe walkers came on this 11 mile ramble up, down and along eight High Peak dales.  Here are some photographs.
