As the 2023 expedition dates get closer and closer all the members are busy finalising their preparations, not least for their physical fitness and mental well-being. What better way to gain time with these important tasks than to go out on the hills of the Derbyshire Peak District together with other expedition members and stretch both the legs and the lungs.
Here are a few images from these short excursions to The Roaches and near Hollinsclough just to the South of Buxton. The weather on the day of the walk at The Roaches was one of the hottest of summer 2023 and served as a reminder of the climate change issues. It was much more pleasant weather when walking near Buxton.
