We were contacted by the Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation Duty Controller at 4pm with reports of a group of walkers lost in the low cloud on Kinder Scout. Details were sketchy but indications were they were somewhere near the western edge.
Eventually we managed to locate them using our PhoneFind technology, just south of Kinder Downfall. The cloud had now lifted, so the group headed south on the relocated edge path and we despatched two of our hill parties to meet them. They were warmed and checked out, then walked back to our vehicles at Edale Cross for transportation back to Hayfield.
