    Camping in Hathersage this weekend (without bikes, unfortunately). Anything in particular that we should look at/do/go to etc?

    Go for a walk along Stanage, visit the Grindleford station caff, which is a bit of a comedy institution and when you get proper frustrated, pop over to Hope, browse around 18 Bikes and then hire a mountain bike from the new place which just next door…

    Mostly we used to just sit in the caff about Outside – brilliant outdoors shop – waiting for it to stop raining so we could go and climb on Stanage. Nice caff btw.

    Like the sound of all that, a trip to 18 Bikes, “just for a look”, is already in the plans!

    +1 on the stanage plan. If you like spoons and traffic lights go to the David Mellor museum down the road ( he designed both and there’s an exhibition and shop and stuff) and after that go to the plough for lunch.

    From the plough, have a walk up the river (cross the road from the pub, wander back towards hathersage but take a left over the stile before the bridge over the river) and there’s a 2 mile round walk up the riverbank, over the stepping stones across the river and then back to the village.

    Go for a swim in the lido ( heated open air outdoor pool thing. Very 40s style)

    Go for a swim in the lido

    Had planned on doing this, but unfortunately it closes at end of September. Pub/stroll sounds good, though.

    The meals in the Little John, were anything but little the last time I visited.

    Pub: http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?X=423444&Y=380474&A=Y&Z=115

    The pub went a bit gastro-pub a couple of years back but last time I went in it had gone back to country pub grub. Good ale too.

    avoid grindleford more like a point and laugh spot that somewhere you would actually eat.
    Head up stanage for a look, enjoy the sunshine – I have a favourite pub in the area but it’s not everyones cup of tea….

    +1 for going to David Mellor’s place.

    Walk up/down Padley Gorge. Play on the rocks at Mother Cap / Owler Tor.

    Get the train out to Edale and walk back.
