Fancy yourself as a bit of a Ramblin' Man or Woman? Maybe brush up on your cartography


I usually see groups of kids doing their bronze DoE training and completely lost. My favourite was a group near the Nags Head, the old start of the Pennine Way in Edale, it was mid afternoon and they asked where the Pennine Way was, they were on it, a person they had asked before pointed it out to them and they were just checking . They said they were heading for the Youth Hostel, it is a serious days walk over Bleaklow, even in summer they would not have made it in daylight. After more questions they wanted the alternate Pennine Way and were staying at the Edale Youth hostel, they did seem a happy bunch though
