After arriving here in the Peak District on a climbing trip I managed to get here a few hours earlier than my climbing friends so I checked out the map and chose a walk over Curbar and Froggatt Edge. I've never walked this way before and it turned out to be a spectacular walk.

The route took me along White Edge first before joining the road near Curbar and then following the path over Curbar and Froggatt Edges to a stone circle.


Following the path through the woods towards White Edge.

Plenty of snow still about thanks to the recent heavy snowfall.


A turn right here leads me to White Edge.


Breathtaking views over the surrounding hills. Thats White Edge over to the left.

Now joining the path along the top of the edge.

The edge may not be too tall but it stretches for several miles making the walking very enjoyable.

Spectacular views towards the Hope Valley and Kinder Scout.

An obvious path along the edge.

Stanage Edge way off in the distance.

Win Hill and Kinder.


White Edge looking very white today...


The snow adds a totally different dimension to the landscape today.

Breathtaking - Very happy to be up here on such a nice day!

Now over on Curbar Edge.

The southern end of Curbar.


A popular climbing crag, and with views like this it's not surprising!


Not much left but one of the many ancient cairns in the area.
