A joint Buxton/Edale snatch squad called to assist a 72 year old lady out walking with a group from the University of the Third Age.
A total of 18 members rendezvoused at Sir William Hill and walked to a position overlooking Bretton Clough where the well equipped and experienced rambler had suffered a knee injury. After treatment by an Edale rescue team doctor, the lady was carried by stretcher for the 1 & 1/2 kilometres back to Sir William Hill where an ambulance was waiting to transfer her to hospital.
