550 Burbage Edge, Goyt Valley

"Consider your wrists slapped" said the Ranger, officiously. It was the first time in over 25 years we'd been caught trespassing on Burbage Edge. But now of course the moor is Access Land and you can wander up the heathery ridge to the trigpoint and admire the view over Buxton, all without breaking the law, or getting a ticking off.
