Member's Comments on Sir William Hill...

  • Chris Pearson says...
  • 5 hr run/ walk out from Shefield with L. Ran up the steep 2km hill from Gridleford -2km 194 m climb in 25 mins. The best cyclists on Strava do it in 7 mins. The same hill featured as the start of a fell race I did in 1999(?). 2nd visit to trig today 1/9/2015. Heavens opened on descent down Bretton Clough - had only one old windproof between us -sheltered under dripping trees then ran on during sunny spells between the black clouds and showers back over Burbage to Sheffield.

  • Walked from Eyam over the Moor to the Derwent Valley at Hathersage. Then back over the Moors to Ollerton and Abney and bagged the top and trig on way back to Eyam. Cracking 10.5 miles
