Ladybower Reservoir in Spring

Ladybower Reservoir in Spring isn’t always the driest of places. However today, apart from the cold wind it was glorious. We parked on the Sheffield side of Ashopton Viaduct and walked up Crook Hill. From there we completed a 13km circuit taking in Ouzelden Clough, Derwent […]

Bamford Edge

Bamford Edge

Our walk along Bamford edge took place in two stages, first we approached it from the car park at Dennis Knoll, under Stanage Edge. It’s a slightly round-about route that takes you around the back of the copse as if you’re headed towards the larger […]
