Kinder is most popularly approached by walkers either from Edale village, up Grindsbrook, or via Jacob's Ladder and on to Kinder Low, or from Hayfield up William Clough and on to the north-west corner of the plateau. In general the eastern and northern parts of the plateau are less accessible and therefore less busy. A circuit of the whole plateau is a long day by any standards but a very enjoyable outing. We will be taking the Jacobs Ladder route for our walk.
Tomorrow more from the Walk on Kinder

This is the view from her empty and deserted cottage last week... the plants still hang in the windows and the ash of the last fire is still in the grate. The lady who lived here many years and who always offered me and Defor a drink as now pasted away. What will become of this wooded home I don't know but the lady will be sadly missed by those out walking this hill. She was such a trusting, kind person with a smile from ear to ear and always a tale to tell. Her garden a refuge for all kinds of wildlife, I will miss her smile, and the smell of the fire in the distance, I will miss the time spent with her and the sharing of stories over a pot of strong tea.

We have plenty of surface water about still, this bottom picture shows a local field that is soaked. That much water as fallen around here it as nowhere to go, it is only a foot or so deep and will slowly disappear but for now it makes a good place to spot ducks.

With all the rain we get it is of little wonder that mosses and lichen grows abundantly around here. I see stuff like this on all my walks, I always have. Now that I have a camera this growths have become of great interest. I still do not know all there names... but for this post I show them for their looks only. Strange but beautiful I think.
