Over the Tops

Public Transport based walk with Josh Dawson.

8.0 mi


A bracing walk with stunning vistas from the high points of Blackstone Edge. This walk takes in a short part of the Rochdale Canal and skirts Hollingworth Lake before climbing up to Littleborough's 'breathing space' of the surrounding hills. On a clear day you can see for miles and miles.

Please bring warm clothes and waterproofs as the weather can suddenly change and there may be some low cloud. Would recommend 2 litres of drinking water as it is quite thirsty work! Packed lunch also essential!
