Hi all. I am off to the Peak this weekend for an overnighter in the Edale area. I usually park around the Stanage area and have never had a problem, but want to park a bit closer to Kinder this time. I checked the main Edale car park and they have a 24 hour payment option. Is this the maximum time you can stay or are you able to pay for two days? I am just concerned that I will be away from my car for over 24 hours so don't want to to get a ticket. Sorry if this has been done to death but I cannot find any concrete answers on this. Alternatively, are their any other 24 hour plus parking areas? Cheers

Excellent! Thanks very much. Hopefully the weather will be ok. First time on Kinder so I'm looking forward to it.

Just be aware that this layby is a known car break-in location.

Also been a number of front ends of cars (bonnets, lights etc) being stolen in the Peak at the mo.  Corsa and Golfs being targeted it seems. AKA Corsa Cannibals - google it.

Well that was fun. Got spectacularly lost on Kinder plateau in driving rain and no visibility. I ascended via ringing roger and lost the edge path. Ended up just following my compass north through the bog until I hit the northern path then followed that to the pennine way. Spent a nice night camping up their though. All in all it was a great experience.

Sounds like fun, & nothing too unusual for Kinder!

Cracking! Not been there for a bit. Ringing Roger is near Swines Back? We bivied by the Pennine Way 19 years or so back. With quite a hangover me and whisky Dave woke in the morning to the sound of sawing. On investigation it turned out to be a local park warden sawing a foot plate off the access across a wire fence . ‘We are getting too many deckers complaining that it is slippy’. He joined us for a cup of early morning whisky tea and we enjoyed the sight of a female Hen Harrier. Happy daze .
