Buxton Mountain Rescue called out to an injured walker on the outskirts of Hartington after dark on Christmas Eve. Derby Search and Rescue were also at scene.
The casualty, a 68 year old man from Birmingham, who was staying with friends at Hartington YHA, had a knee problem which had become progressively worse during a walk. He was treated on site by team members and carried by stretcher to Bridge End Farm, where he was transferred to a Derby team vehicle and driven to the road end to await an ambulance.
The ambulance transported the man to a hospital in Chesterfield for further treatment.
