Errwood Reservoir

Sunday 13 March 2016. I met Jacqui again today for a walk from the shores of Errwood Reservoir in the Goyt valley. It was a cool and hazy start but the day developed beautifully with warm sunshine by early afternoon. Our route took us up to Shining Tor (1,834ft) where we stopped very briefly for coffee. There then followed a near 2-mile ridge walk as we made our way over Cats Tor and on to Pym Chair. It was at this point where we had to decide whether to do a 10-mile or 6-mile walk. The shorter route won out.

A small section of road walking soon brought us to our return route just below Foxlow Edge and back to the cars. The walk was 5.8 miles with a total ascent of 1,250ft. As we had an early finish, we went into Buxton for lunch at the Pavilion Gardens. I stopped on the drive back to take a picture of hang gliders over Mam Tor.
