Public Transport based walk with Alan Beeby.
From Hope station we will tread through a few fields before ascending up Win Hill. After this dazzling view we will then submerge to forest near Ladybower Reservoir. A brief forest trail will then give way to the second climb up to Open Hagg. More fantastic views follow and then the invetiable droop to the reservoir. We will then follow the large body of water round to a foot path which will lead us to Bamford. I will be finishing the walk at the Anglers Rest a pub that also doubles as the local post office.
