Baslow Edge

Baslow Edge is a beautiful vantage point overlooking the Peak District National Park and the surrounding countryside. It features plenty of gritstone rocks, which are surrounded by wild moors.

The short walk along Baslow Edge is a good way to see some Highland Cattle. It takes around 45 minutes to walk across the edge and is only slightly over two miles long. Due to the small car park at the end of the road, it’s advised to get to the edge early. The path that follows the edge of the crags is uneven, so it’s not ideal for everyone. There’s also a viewpoint with an information board highlighting the various places you can see.

Getting there

Start at Curbar Gap Car Park above Curbar via the A623 or from the A621 Baslow to Sheffield Road.
