Cadets from 1220 (March) Squadron, who are working towards their silver Duke of Edinburgh’s award, camped in the centre of Edale and completed three different routes.

On the final day, the cadets were challenged to find their own way to Castleton to meet the staff.

Carrying full expedition sacks, they agreed their route with the staff and set off to use their newly acquired skills.

Cadet Ewan MacRae, 15, said: “It was fun to navigate on different terrain especially as the hills allowed us to get good views.”
