his year’s President’s Walk will take place on Sunday 9 December.
Castle Naze will be well known to the climbers but perhaps not the walkers. We will start from outside the Beehive pub in Combs and walk up to the Iron Age hill fort above the climbing crags at Castle Naze. From there we will follow Combs Edge to White Hall, and then return via Wainstones to Combs and the very excellent pub. Distance about 6 miles, and after an initial steep start the walk along the Edge is fairly level. If the weather is good there are superb views over Combs Reservoir and the Peak District.
It can be quite exposed to the wind so be prepared! Unfortunately Combs Moss is access land and NO DOGS are allowed.
Meet outside the Beehive in Combs at 10:00 am. There is no public car park, so please park considerately and keep the chatter down, and car-share where possible. Please let me know if you will be coming so I can have an idea of numbers. If coming by public transport it is possible to walk up from Chapel-en-le-Frith railway station via Bank Hall and join us at the lane below Castle Naze (SK053786) at approx. 10:30 – please let me know if you will be doing this.
See you there!
