AboutThis tour is an opportunity to enjoy the wilder side of the Peak District, with magnificent views from some unique vantage points; the atmospheric gritstone edges of the Dark Peak.
Higgar tor is a wonderful hilltop where you can wander around the gritstone boulders, with great views across Hathersage Moor and Carl Wark Fort, as well as across to Hope Valley. A short hop away is Millstone Edge where a short walk can bring us to some abandoned millstones. Then a short walk will take us to the amazing views from Stanage Edge itself, the longest and arguably most spectacular of the Peak District's edges.
Baslow Edge offers great views across the villages of Baslow, Curbar and Calver and, occasionally, the opportunity to photograph some friendly highland cattle.
And finally, Bamford Edge offers a great view over Ladybower Reservoir and Derwent Valley; one of the most celebrated views in the Peak District.
The tour will be provided by Mark Sweeney from Live For The Hills, who takes all the photographs for the website and social media channels.
The tour is informal and friendly, with opportunities to stop at the various locations to try out some landscape photography. There will also be an opportunity to enjoy a nice pub lunch at one of the Peak District's great traditional pubs; ideal to discuss photography and post processing techniques, as well as shelter from the elements!
This tour does require some walking along footpaths which are uneven and can be fairly steep in places so a reasonable level of fitness would be recommended, as well as suitable outdoor footwear.
We would suggest a pick up time of 10am and would expect to return at around 5pm.
The itinerary can be flexible on the day to suit your preferences, as this is a private tour. So, if there is somewhere that you particularly want to visit on your tour, we will try and fit that in for you. We pride ourselves on flexibility and love a challenge!
