High Neb, Stanage Edge in August – Peak District Photography

High Neb, the highest point on Stanage edge under a colourful summer sunset. Just after a heavy rainstorm the sky turned beautiful shades of pink and purple, mirroring the blooming heather on the edge.

About High Neb:

Stanage Edge is the longest and most impressive of all the gritstone edges in the Peak District, stretching for approximately 3.5 miles.  The northern part of the edge lies along the county border between Derbyshire and South Yorkshire. High Neb is the highest point on Stanage Edge standing at at 458 metres (1,503 ft) above sea level and offering stunning views over the Hope and Derwent Valleys. Much like the other gritstone edges in the dark peak, vast areas of Stanage were once quarried to produce grindstones, some of which can still be seen strewn below the edge.

Stanage Edge is steeped in history was once part of a major trade route. The remains of a medieval paved packhorse road can still be seen, as can the remains of the Roman road which crosses the Hallam Moors and past Stanedge Pole, an ancient waymarker on the route to Sheffield.
