Route Outline

The Goyt Valley and surrounding area is a popular place for walking. Errwood and Fernilees reservoirs add interest to the valleys contrasting with the wilder upland on either side of the valley. The area to the west of the valley lies in Cheshire and the landscape is a far cry from the stereotype of this county.
