Des-res in Roych Clough

DERBYSHIRE HIGH PEAK (2)

HAYFIELD to CHAPEL-en-le-FRITH

WALK A - 11.5 miles

We start out through the National Trust property of Park Hall and ascend to Middle Moor. We skirt round Kinder Reservoir and make a further ascent to Broad Clough, across Kinderlow End then up to Edale Cross. A paved path to Brown Knoll before a peaty moorland path down to South Head to pick up the Pennine Bridleway where the B Walk joins.

WALK B - 8.5 miles

From Hayfield village we take the Pennine Bridleway to Elle Bank and then the path to Stones House. We walk above Coldwell Clough out onto Mount Famine before dropping down to South Head, now both walks follow the same route.

The Pennine Bridleway takes us below The Roych and into Roych Clough, here we can see the entrance to Cowburn Tunnel that goes under Toot Hill to Edale. We continue along the track to Bolehill Clough and past Tom Moor Plantation towards Rushup Hall. Here we leave the Pennine Bridleway and cut down to Stonyford and then the tiny hamlet of Bagshaw. The descent continues past Bagshaw Hall before reaching Chapel-en-le-Frith.
