The G-SP region is easily the most active of the whole SOTA programme. As such there is a wealth of information on each summit. The SOTAwatch ""summits"" database should be the first place that you visit for information. You might expect that most of the hills in this section would lie within the Peak District National Park – but you would be wrong! The Marilyn definition achieves a much wider distribution of summits. In this region there is real variety, ranging from easy tops such as The Cloud (SOTA's most activated hill) to more strenuous moorland tops like Ward's Stone. The more remote moorland hills will require good navigation skills in all but the best of weather – and finding the “summit” of Kinder Scout can be taxing even on a clear day. The proximity of many of these hills to population centres such as Sheffield and Manchester may make 2m FM a good choice for really lightweight trip. There is a lot of 2m FM activity in the area and contacts are generally easy to come by. Completion of all the SPs within a year is a realistic target for anyone who is fit and keen enough. Some you'll want to do again, others maybe not!
