'Longshaw Limber celebrates the Centenary of the National Trust. It takes in some of the best that the Peak District has to offer and yet it starts within 15 minutes of England’s fifth largest city, Sheffield ... This is my log of the Longshaw Limber challenge walk. As promised by the route description I found splendid scenery, haunting moorland, old halls, gritstone edges, a famous village and 4,200ft of ascent! The walk was designed by Paul Pugh.'
