Marple to Glossop
30 Nov 19 Train to Marple then walked over Mellor Moor and Cown Edge to Glossop, then train
back to Manchester. Mostly sunny but a bitterly cold wind on the tops.

It was a good move to stay further west - the easterly wind kept the high tops covered in
low cloud all day which dispersed on the western side of the Pennines, leaving me in sunshine.
