“Fantastic views, a must visit location!”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Every easy to access with ample parking. Views are simply amazing especially at evening time on a clear day. Always busy with climbers still climbing when its dark.
It would be worth taking some food or a picnic with you as there are no shops near by.

“Easily accessible”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

Easy to reach and easy to walk up to the edge. We went on a lovely sunny day, so views were excellent. It is very popular with walkers and climbers so don 't expect a quiet walk.

Me and my partner walked along the Stanage Edge, absolutely fantastic views and great fun watching the climbers, take a picnic and find a nice place to sit and admire the views, it can be a bit windy, so pick your day.

“Stunning Stanage Edge!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

This is a rugged outcrop of millstone grit, overlooking Hathersage and beyond. There are over 444 climbs on this edge, giving novice to experienced rock climbs. This is a dangerous climbing area and great care must be taken by wearing the correct gear and going out with an experienced climber. The views from the top are breathtaking and you can see right over to Mam Tor to the south west. If you walk to the centre of the edge you will see a pole. This is called Stanage Pole and the adjacent path takes you down to Redmires Reservoirs. From there you can see all the power stations in North Yorkshire. Ferrybridge, Drax and Eggborough. They must be a distance of around 16 miles away. Looking East from Stanage Edge, you can see Carl Wark and Burbage Edge. It is very remote. Even in summer it can be quite cool. Be sure to take extra clothing to visit and enjoy this region. We will always visit this place. It is very much a part of us.
