Sheffield Shamblers Walking Group - Crowden - Sunday 13th May

Recommended Posts





This is a lovely moderate going 8 mile walk taking us roughly 4 hours plus stoppages. Its a superbly varied walk sampling waterside, woodland, moors and the miniature rocky gorge of Lads Leap. The walk starts by the National Park Information centre at Torside Reservoir and takes us along the Longendale trail, Pennine way, Bleaklow and back to the start.


The terrain will mainly be well used paths and tracks, with a climb onto moorland where some sections may get a bit boggy.




Start time: 10:30am


Meeting point: National Park Information Centre off the B6105, Glossop Road at Torside Reservoir.


To find the meeting place, just follow the Stocksbridge by-pass to the A628, and then take this across the Woodhead Pass. Just after the Woodhead reservoir take the B6105 towards Glossop, and it's about a mile and a half along here on the right overlooking Torside reservoir.
