Tors & Moors around the Goyt Valley guided walk

5. Tors & Moors around The Goyt Valley

Saturday 30 June 2018 - Fully booked


A full day guided walk as part of a small group of no more than six people plus your guide over tors, moors and through woodland surrounding Errwood Reservoir in the Goyt valley.  Throughout the day, your friendly, professional guide will share with you a wealth of knowledge about the local history, geology, wildlife and plantlife.  


From the car park at the north west corner of Errwood Reservoir, we walk northward on a pretty woodland path at the side of Fernilee Reservoir.  We then ascend to Taxal Edge and enjoy a scenic high level walk over Pym Chair, Cats Tor and Shining Tor. 


We descend through beautiful woodland into Shooter's Clough and explore the ruins of Errwood Hall.  We return on lower level paths around Errwood Reservoir.


A varied and scenic walk, so don't forget your camera! 


The Tors and Moors around Errwood Reservoir walk is about 13 miles/21km with approx 900 metres of ascent/descent over ground that is sometimes rough and might be boggy in places..

Meeting Place and Time

The Tors and Moors around The Goyt Valley guided walk starts at 9:30am, and we meet 15 minutes before that at 9:15am.  


We meet in the public car park at the north west corner of Errwood Reservoir.  There is no post code because there are no buildings for miles around.  


Please note that you CANNOT approach the car park down Goyt's Clough via Derbyshire Bridge off the A537 near to the Cat & Fiddle pub.  This is a one-way road that can only be used in the opposite direction.  If your sat nav tries to take you that way ignore it!  If you are travelling from Buxton, take the A5004 towards Whaley Bridge and then a couple of miles out of the town, turn left down Goyt's Lane signposted to The Goyt Valley.  Continue down the lane to the bottom of the hill.  Drive across the dam wall.  At the 'give way' turn left, then almost immediately turn right into the car park.       


The Google map to the right that you can zoom in and out of provides clarification regarding the location..  


Access by public transport might be a possibility.  Please contact us to discuss the options.
