Public Transport based walk with Aidan McGrath.
The walk starts from Greenfield Station through the village to Dovestone Reservoir. We then head up through the woods onto a section of the Oldham Way and up to the Obelisk above Greenfield. We then head South towards Aldermans Hill then we swing North towards Dick Hill and Sugar Loaf. The walk then proceeds over Saddleworth Moor to Sykes Pillar at Broadstone Hill. From there its a descent towards Uppermill where we join the Pennine Bridleway and Tame Valley way for the walk back to Greenfield and the inevitable pub stop.
