Several tops 'rise' from the A53 south of Buxton, and Axe Edge Moor is one of them. I drove along the minor road towards the A54 and set off from an otherwise arbitrary point from where I could clearly see its trig column. A brisk walk across tufty grass with only minor wet patches quickly gained the top.On the return I followed a thin track heading (so I thought) towards the road east of the start, but as it showed signs of straying too far in that direction I attempted a beeline to the start, and paid for my impatience with immersion in a bog hole.
