Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team called in the early evening after a group of walkers had contacted Derbyshire Police asking for directions to get off Kinder Scout.

The walkers’ exact position was located by using smart phone technology which placed them at the top of Crowden Brook.  The party of three men, all from The New Forest area, had very limited lighting with them so a small section of the rescue team climbed Crowden Brook to meet the walkers and assist them off the hillside.
