Unfortunately, we missed out on some of the Lake’s most iconic views, but it was still an enjoyable adventure. I was glad that we were prepared so could layer up as we climbed. The lack of visibility made navigation a little tricky, again I was prepared and had researched the route, plus I had a map and compass with me.
Wetton and Thor’s Cave, Peak District
This is a little more family-friendly. When we have our son with us we tend to go for shorter, flatter routes, but we still like to look at something.
I planned a route starting and finishing at the village of Wetton in the Peak District. After leaving the village, we headed to Thor’s Cave.
This is a great place for children (and adults!) to explore and has great views over the countryside. We then headed down to the river and followed the manifold trail path for a short distance, before heading around and over Wetton Hill and back to the village. The wind can be strong on the hill, but the views are worth it!
