Armitage's garden centre in hardest hack yet

Having completed the 2005/06 route across the North Yorkshire Moors , the 2007/08 Route up Black Hill and over the Woodhead Pass, and the 2009/10 route up and round Ingleborough Armitage's garden Centres MD Will Armitage "can honestly say the 2011/12 Buxton and High Peak hack was one of the hardest yet".

He added of the fundraising walk:
"Every member of our team finished in under 10  hours, (regardless of injuries and exhaustion), and I am sure it would not have been possible had we not had so much support from all our sponsors.
"A huge congratulations to all the team, a massive thanks to everyone who sponsored us and a little reminder to anyone who hasn't got round to making a donation yet.... It's not too late!
