Eyam Circular - Saturday 12th July 2014

The walk started at the Eyam Hall Car Park and 9 of us set off on the first part of the ramble, a gentle undulating walk to Foolow where we stopped for coffee, tea and water, kindly provided by St Oswald’s Church.  We spent a little time admiring the duck pond, church and the village gardens in the sunshine, before setting off for the most demanding part of the walk up to Eyam Edge, a particularly steep climb, and on completion we took the opportunity to recover our breath and eat our packed lunch.


Afterwards, a little more climbing along the road to the summit where we dropped steeply down past the youth hostel, then along a very picturesque path towards Eyam Tea Rooms where we enjoyed refreshment in the glorious sunshine. A fairly tough 6 miles, but the views were stunning and a visit to the tea room always makes it worthwhile!
