This time last year I was getting a tan on the SWCP, this year I'm in a tent and its a bit nippy outside! I suppose that why we love the weather in the UK so much! A few days in the peaks was much needed and an awful weather forecast was not going to hold me back! I arrived late the night before and hardly slept with the rain pounding the tent, remarkably it was only a few spots the next morning.

The walk soon begins to climb after Barber Booth up towards Chapel Gate. I have walked this section before and it's fair to say I struggled up the hill. It wasn't much different this time, except the path was slightly better, and didn't feel quite as long! For the most part, whilst very wet, it wasn't that boggy.

|The Hope Valley from Lords seat|
|From Lose Hill, to Mam Tor and Rushup Edge|
The path dropped into Hope and I was off to the pub to watch the wrong type of rugby and get a well deserved drink!
