I don't think Edale is served by any buses (though I may be wrong). Certainly not from the Hayfield side - High Peak Buses serve this area.


You can walk the Sett Valley Trail to New Mills and catch a train to Edale. It adds a couple of miles but it's easy walking.


I haven't yet used it but I think High Peak Buses have a route that connects Hayfield and Glossop, which you could use to do a walk back over the moors to your starting point, perhaps the Doctor's Gate Path to Pennine Way south, and then down to Hayfield via Mill Hill.

ok thanks. Had a look at High Peak Buses. The services really are quite sparse. I wasn't expecting TFL at all, but still!

Hayfield is also on the Stagecoach 358. Here's a link to timetables and a public transport map of Derbyshire

This bus https://bustimes.org.uk/services/em_11-61-E-y08 I've used it a number of times.
Over hill, over dale. Thorough brush, thorough brier....
I do wander every where

Don't worry about the summit.. Kinder low trig point is waaaay more interesting! A mighty fine spot O0

True that! In fact, the summit is probably a strong contender for the least interesting point on the plateau...  ;D
