Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Andy Buckley & Bayda'a Nasrall.
A linear walk starting from Mossley to Glossop. On leaving Mossley, we take a steep rough path up to Turf Pits - once we reach this summit, we continue along good tracks across the exposed moors with undulating countryside. We then descend toward Tintwistle and circum-navigate Bottoms and Valehouse reservoirs before heading onto the Longendale trail towards Padfield. Then, it's a final bit of urban walking towards the end at Glossop. Pub stops half way through and upon arrival at Glossop. So if Bayda'a can do it……Wahey!!
