peak district walks

43. Hulme end, Warslow peak district walk

43. Hulme end, Warslow 7th February 2014.

Parking in the car park of Ye Olde Butchers Arms which wasn’t open we headed east over a stile a little further up the road from the pub. The rain was coming sideways at us, not a great start but we were suitably waterproofed. We picked up the road at Kirkham Yard Farm, crossed the B5053 through a farm yard. We had to wait for the farmer and his wife to contain the 20 or so sheep to allow us to pass through then down through the fields and to a road junction turning right past Hulme house. As the lane bends to the right taking the path on the left across the fields heading south east to the Manifold Inn for refreshments. Back along the road to the visitors centre then along the path south west on the manifold way veering off right along a path which runs above the Manifold Way, great views. Turning right onto Dale road then left onto Butts Lane then right into Leek Road paying a visit at the Greyhound Inn. Up the road northwest to the path on the right to Revidge Wood veering off left to see the trig point. Down the hill and onto the road back to the Butchers Inn.
