This South Pennine walk, despite the industrial development in the valleys, still offers a taste of wilderness. From the summits of the hills you are reminded of the many towns and cities that flank the Pennine hills, yet often you can enjoy the view in total silence uninterrupted by other people. This walk starts from the shores of a lake that was once very popular with the inhabitants of the local mill towns and climbs gently onto the Pennine Ridge traversing Blackstone Edge with its superb views.
It is recommended you take a map with you when following a walk route. The preferred scale is 1:25000 used by the Explorer series.
Note : If two maps are listed at the same scale then either (a) both are required for full coverage of the route or (b) the route is covered on both maps.
