description

The maximum number of people on this walk will be 12, including the walk leaders.

I last led this walk for TAH on 23.06.18.

Starting from the car park we head along Bradbury Lane before ascending Alphin Pike.  We then follow the ridge past Wimberry Rocks, past the Fox Stone and Memorial Cross to Ashway Gap.

At Ashway Gap those people doing the shorter walk can take the path downhill then walk alongside Dovestone Reservoir back to the car park.

Those people doing the longer walk will continue along the ridge to Raven Stones Brow, cross the stream and head down the path at Greenfield Brook (parts of which involve easy scrambling).  We then have an easy walk alongside the three reservoirs, Greenfield, Yeoman Hey and Dovestone back to the car park.
