We were contacted late on Saturday evening with a group of walkers who had left Edale in the afternoon and were now lost and benighted on Kinder Scout. We were able to locate them via their mobile phone to Kinder Low trig point. Hill parties were despatched to Kinder Low to help walk them off the hill.
Before we were able to reach them they were met by other walkers, who offered to walk them down to Jacobs Ladder. Our hill parties therefore changed plans and hoped to meet them at the top of Jacobs Ladder. The group of walkers got there just ahead of us and were happy to descend. We therefore sent a vehicle around to meet them at the bottom.
Once we had met up with them and checked everyone was ok, we helped to return them to their car in Edale and all ended well. We stood down and team members returned home to bed.
