General Notes
Working people from the Manchester area would take the train out to Marsden, spend the day dodging bogs & gamekeepers, to catch the train home from Edale. We will follow in their footsteps; with improved countryside access, we shouldn't have any trouble with gamekeepers! To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the LDWA, everyone who completes will receive a special badge & certificate
