A 21 mile afternoon/evening hike from Penistone Station to Bamford Station.  Route taken: leaving Penistone Station at 11.45 Woodhead Route (Trans Pennine Trail) west to Cote Bank Bridge; south to Langsett Reservoir and across Little Don River; Cut Gate Path to Howden Edge; south along Howden Edge (West Rim) then unmarked path along South Rim of Howden Edge, southeast passing south of Wet Stones, across the head of Gravy Clough and then down the east side of Foul Clough to Abbey Brook below Barristers Tor.  After paddling in the totally secluded Abbey Brook continued southwest up Sheepfold Clough to join Lost Lad path and then southeast to Back Tor on Derwent Edge.  South along Derwent Edge, taking the path to Ashopton, emerging just behind the Ladybower Inn (21.10).  Well deserved pints were taken at the Yorkshire Bridge Inn and the Anglers Rest in Bamford enroute to Bamford Station (23.05).
