788 Froggatt, Curbar and Baslow Edges

Climbers call Chequers Buttress at Froggatt a Hard Very Severe which, for most folk, means impossible. But watching from below you have to marvel at the grace with which they balance up the rock, while below lie millstones dating back to when watermills ground the corn. The walk continues over Curbar and Baslow Edges, all with magnificent views, finishing with a bit of retail therapy and a cuppa at the Derbyshire Craft Centre.
