The second of our three part Mid-summer walks, this is a moderate length walk from Greenfield to Marsden, visiting the Broadstones trig and some reservoirs before dropping down to Marsden. The route follows quite rough moorland with one long steep climb at the start, and a little bit of off path walking.
