Has anyone booked accommodation for this. If so where, Thank you, Gavin

Several people have, in Edale and Hathersage, as far as I know. If you book, book with free cancellation, just in case there are trackwork related reasons for postponing the whole thing.

looks quite expensive apart from hostels in both haversage and edale. Might camp, Gavin

Hi Thomas,

I went there for Eastern and chained some walks nicely:
266 - Sheffield to Bamford (amended to YHA Heathersage)
302 - Bamford (amended to YHA Heathersage) to Edale
304 - Kinder Scout Circuit (as variation I went along the south edge instead of the north due to time constraints and started at YHA Edale)

Have fun,

Wunderbar! Good to hear, that's what they're for.

If travelling by public transport and camping try Hardhurst Farm very close to railway station and bus with a nice pub on the main road.

I booked a cottage at the old nags head in Edale for four nights (17th - 20th @ £430) and could potentially share with two three other people - there is a double and twin room and a sofa bed. email me on if interested

28 walkers on day 1 plus 2 who due to recent injury/illness couldn't join the club walks (and explored Eyam, Castleton and Hathersage's heated pool instead). 2 new arrivals on day 2, 7 on day 3 and 1 on day 4. I make that 40 people in total. Thanks for coming along.
