Comments from vistors to this website.
"My husband and I have been in the area (just outside Stocksbridge) for the last 3 days. Before we arrived we found your excellent website and decided to do Walks 14 and 20.
They were spectacular and we were very impressed with the accuracy and details included in your information.
Thank you very much. We hope to visit the area again and do more of the walks!"
