NCN6 to Castleton now Signed

A small group of us have signed the NCN6 alignment through the Hope Valley. Doing it reminded us what a fabulous route it is.

The hard climb out of Sheffield is rewarded when you reach Derbyshire.

And are rewarded by a sea of heather. Come in the Autumn when it is bright purple, or any time!

Further rewards are given as the Hope Valley comes into view and when you swoop down to Yorkshire Bridge. Our route takes you across the Ladybower Dam before joining a lesser-known trail for a short while and then along tiny lanes to Hope. A harsh reminder of the modern world lies at Pindale Quarry but the tourist trap of Castleton and the Shivering Mountain await you...if you make it to Manchester will a Rusholme curry ever taste this good again?

Anyway, here we are putting up some signs (following the Sustrans guide of course)
