Seven Stones of Hordron Edge (Stone Circle) by Kozmik_Ken I had originally planned to go to Bamford Edge on Sunday morning for sunrise. However, snow the day before meant that I wouldn't have stood a chance of getting my puny Ford Focus up the steep road from Bamford. I set of for Froggatt Edge but early morning conditions on the A57 were so bad, that I decided to stop at the nearest place and parked at Cutthroat Bridge, to visit Hordron Edge.

A normally quite easy walk, with only a short uphill scramble was hampered by about six inches of snow on the path. Conditions on the top of the edge, were the snow was often knee deep made the rest of the walk a real slog.

However, I was treated to a wonderful sunrise. Eventually the light of the low winter sun reached Hordron Edge Stone Circle (Seven Stones of Hordron), encased in snow drifts.
