A linear walk (ideally using two cars) in Derbyshire from Upper Burbage Car Park, along Stanage Edge to Stanage Pole and back to Ringinglow via the reservoirs. There is a spectacular 360 degree panorama from most of the walk, views into the Hope Valley, Sheffield and beyond. A walk along the top of the Stanage Edge and then overseeing the Remires Reservoirs. You can extend the route by going to the reservoirs or make it a circular route (of 8 miles) to walk back to the car park. It is designed to end at The Norfolk Arms for a lunch stop. Afterwards you could get a lift back to the car (if you are using two cars), or if you walk this last stretch instead at a brisk pace it takes an extra 30 minutes. The route has several climbs and descents throughout. Whilst some sections of path are paved, the unmade peat stretches can be very wet after periods of rain or in winter. You will need to negotiate several gates and stiles (including fence stiles, wall stiles and a ladder stile). You will be sharing some of the paths with livestock. Allow 3 hours for the linear walk or 3.5 hours if you are walking the final stretch back to the car.
