The members listed assembled at Marple Station at about 9am to catch the 9.20 train to Edale. Route from Edale, part way up Grindsbrook, then sharp right up a clough and over the ridge to Seal Rocks. Then along Seal Edge, The Edge and Kinder Edge to the head of William Clough. Then into Hayfield via William Clough and near Kinder Reservoir.

The weather was excellent - the first time we've had good weather on this route. Had good fun on the many rocks and enjoyed wide views.
Found a 12.5mm machine gun round near head of William Clough - disposed of it in the bogs. A good ramble; took several photographs.
Sandra split her slacks from top to bottom. Sewed them up with a collection of safety pins. Had to hurry a few of the stragglers in order to catch the 4.13 train from Hayfield to Marple.
