In late 2018, the DofE changed the requirements for the Expedition Section of the Bronze Award. The changes mean that now you no longer have to complete a practice expedition. Instead you can go straight into a qualifying expedition provided you have completed all your pre-expedition training to a sufficient standard.
As a result of this, we have changed the way we are running our Open Bronze programmes: during our 4-day programme you will now complete all your pre-expedition training as well as your qualifying expedition in one go.
Hathersage is easily accessible by train. Change at either Manchester or Sheffield and catch the Trans Pennine train to Hathersage.
Far-reaching views, heath and moorland, gritstone edges and crags.
Mostly well defined paths with some uneven and rocky ground.
On your first night you’ll be staying at a campsite with good facilities. Whilst on expedition, campsites may only have basic facilities.
