Join us for our first weekend hike of the year, where we will be exploring the moors and dales, rivers, springs and caverns of the beautiful Peak District National Park.

We will be staying in a caving hut so you will need a sleeping bag

Itinerary: depart on Friday afternoon from Cranfield University, hiking on Saturday, meal on Saturday night. We will do a shorter hike on Sunday morning before going on a cave tour  and returning to Cranfield on Sunday evening. Detailed program will be available nearer to the date of each trip

We need drivers so if you are happy to drive and take three others can you let us know in your email
