July 1965 - Horrible Hill

The following members: F R Mason, Tony Mason, John Durham, and others travelled by train to Edale and thence across the fields and landslide to Crowden Brook. Tony left as at the landslide as, having been on a night ramble, he found another trek to be a bit much.

The main group scrambled up Crowden Brook, played around at the Letter Box before plugging across the bog to the Kinder Stream and so to the Downfall. We scrambled down the side of the Downfall to follow the stream down to the reservoir, up Horrible Hill, and past the reservoir and so into Hayfield.
