The Roaches and Ramshaw Rocks

The Roaches guided walk

2. The Roaches and Ramshaw Rocks

Sunday 16 April 2023.

A full day guided walk as part of a small group to explore the stunning gritstone hills on the Staffordshire side of the Peak District.  


Why not make a weekend of it and join our Tors and Moors Around The Goyt Valley Walk on Saturday 15 April? 


Highlights of the walk will include ascents of Hen Cloud, Ramshaw Rocks, Gradbach Hill, a visit to the deep chasm called Luds Church, and then a walk along the entire length of the ridge of the range of hills known as The Roaches.  On a clear day, far reaching views can be enjoyed across the surrounding countryside.


The walk is about 11 miles/18km with about 2300ft/700m of ascent.  The ground is rough and stony in places and can be wet and boggy in other places. 


The cost is £38 per person.  Please book and pay below.

Meeting place and time

We meet at 9.15am to be ready for a 9:30am start at Roaches Gate.  

Roaches Gate is is a car parking layby about a mile down the little lane that leads north west out of the village of Upper Hulme.  If you follow the signs for the Roaches Tea Rooms it will get you onto the the right road, but it's further along than the tea rooms if travelling from Upper Hulme.  There are several car parking laybys down this road.  The correct one is where there is a wooden gate between the main parking layby and one that allows disabled parking only.  


The Google map to the right marks the spot.  There is no post code because there are no buildings nearby.
