Yesterday morning i parked the van in Edale, Derbyshire and headed out to the southern edge of Kinder scout.
I had analysed the weather till i could take no more and i just wanted to go out for a run in the sunshine.
It was brilliant weather for a run so i quickly changed my clothing accordingly and began up Grindsbrook knoll. Although initially quite steep in gradient the knoll flattens off upon arriving on the Kinder scout plateau.
The purple bell heather was flowering everywhere around me which made for a nice contrast with the weathered, gritstone rock formations close to the “old” Pennine way path.
I could actually smell the bell heather as i was running. Not a bad thing at all.
I decided to head back down to Edale via the Ringing Roger descent. Although there is quite a bit loose rock underfoot, depending on the line, it is was still very enjoyable.
A great way of keeping fit!
