This is the jaw-dropping moment a family walks along Britain’s scariest footpath, with only a metal handrail separating them from a 300ft drop.
Remarkable drone footage captured at the Giddy Edge path in Matlock Bath, Derbyshire shows a man and two young girls tentatively creeping along the treacherous route.
In the clip, the family can be seen wandering perilously close to the edge of the cliff which is considered one of Britain’s most dangerous paths.
Walkers, no matter how seasoned, are often advised to avoid the path in windy and rainy conditions, while authorities say children and animals should be kept an eye on at all times.
