Castleton and peak ferest circular walk

 did another practice walk on sunday, and again the weather was great, was only a 7 mile walk but a really good walk starting in Castleton-Winnats-Sweetknoll-Peak Forest-Old Dam Lane-Oxlow Rake-Limestone Way-Cave Dale back to Castleton walking along Moorland paths and tracks and a rocky dale path, got some great picks that you can see if you look at the practice walk pics link, this link is to photobucket where there are also pics of some of the mountain walks me and sean have done over the past two years.

The good thin about the walk is that Sean got some practice using the maps and we got a bit of a feel of what to expect on the coast to coast, and i got some practice on the dreaded stiles that my brain and legs dont seem to be in sink when climbing over them lol.
