Bleaklow, scene of two rescues

Rescuers were called out twice to the Peak District’s second-highest hill when walkers got lost.

Glossop Mountain Rescue Team was alerted about 11.15pm on Wednesday when a group of two adults and 14 teenagers called for help from Bleaklow.

Peter Jozefczyk of Glossop MRT said: “The group had set off from the Snake Road earlier in the day and became lost on Bleaklow Moor as night fell,

“Some of the party did have torches but their batteries ran out.

“They were located by the team at the top of Wildboar Clough and were all escorted safely down to Torside visitor centre car park.”

The team was on Bleaklow again on Friday when a pair of elderly walkers became disoriented on the moor. Team members were called out at 4pm.

Mr Jozefczyk said: “The team located them at Fork stones above Grains and then escorted them back to Snake Summit.”
