There was an old cementary opposite the church.
It was really difficult to squeeze through !
Having walked a steep hill I reached the ridge. This was a route to carry coffins from Edale Valley to Hope Valley where Castleton church is.
These are old mountains built of limestone and gritstone. They are really moorlands with the highest point, Kinder Scout, of 636 meters over the sea level. Yet the views were spectacular. Then I walked up to Man TorThe road winds along a canyon
The bottom of the valley used to be a warm sea long time before dinozaurs so the hills are made of an enormous, fossilised reef. This is why you can buy fantastic fossils here even for as little as 2 pounds. I finished off with rum and raisins ice cream .
