Peter Walker: Track 3041 in area near Axe Edge Moor, Lancashire, Cheshire & the Southern Pennines (Britain)
Axe Edge Moor
Length: 1.5km, Creator time taken: 18m38s, Ascent: 40m,
Descent: 38m

Places: Start at SK03003 70200, Axe Edge Moor, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1

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.
The summit
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.

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 0h 22m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.

* Note: A GPS Height in the elevation profile is sourced from the device that recorded the track. An "SRTM" height is derived from a model of elevations for parts of the earth. More detail
