John is leading two sets of walks in 2017:
April 30th and May 1st as part of the Big Session in Buxton – click here for information about the Big Session. The first walk is a gentle amble up to Solomans Temple on the Sunday morning, returning for the ceilidh with Oysterband in the afternoon. The second walk is a more challenging walk on May Day morning. It involves a steep climb and a steep descent. Some experience and the right walking gear is necessary. We will take the train from Buxton to Dove Holes (everyone must buy their own tickets) then walk back to Buxton. From Dove Holes station we will climb up to Lady Low, then along Black Edge to Flint Clough and the descent back down into Buxton. Further details on both walks will be available at the festival.
