Crow Moon Eclipse Hike

3rd March 2007
 
Under the light of the Crow Moon we walk up amongst the limestone of Cavedale and follow tracks over to Windy Knoll, up onto Mam Tor and we then follow the ridge via Hollins Cross to Lose Hill and back down through fields to Castleton. If it's a clear night then the total lunar eclipse may be visible towards the end of the walk. Bring warm clothes and a torch were a must
