Hayfield: on the moorland's edge
We'll take in Lantern Pike, Burnt Hill and Mill Hill on the way up to the Pennine Way at the foot of Kinder. Our route will then descend via William Clough to the Shooting Cabin overlooking Kinder Reservoir. Great views of the Kinder valley and the downfall should be possible from there: the perfect tea break spot!

From there we'll follow the River Wye upstream to reach Biggin Dale. It's then up Biggin Dale, through the nature reserve and then back to Hartington through the fields

The route then heads off to Forest Chapel and through the Macclesfield Forest leading to a climb to the summit of Shutlingsloe. From there we return to Trentabank Reservoir.

Farleton Fell and Hutton Roof Crags
Farleton Fell and Hutton Roof Crags are near junction 36 of the M6 and with great views across Morecambe Bay, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District mountains.
This strenuous walk will start at 09.30 and covers 12 miles with 2000ft (600m) of ascent.
The walk starts near the Hideaway cafe and follows the Lancaster canal for a short distance before going through Farleton village and taking a very steep ascent up the side of Farleton Fell where the limestone pavement provides spectacular scenery with views in all directions. Hutton Roof Crags are more wooded and the return trail includes a mix of fields, woods and lanes.
Holcombe Moor and Peel Tower, Ramsbottom
Starting below Peel tower, this walk follows the line of the ridge, eventually climbing up to the moor at Beetle Hill. We will join part of the Rossendale way to circle Tor Hill, before returning to Holcombe moor across to Peel Tower to complete a figure of eight back to where we started.
If the weather is clear we should have views right the way back over to manchester and beyond.
Meeting Point - Lumb Carr Road car park.
The car park is free.
If you come from the bottom of the hill and pass the pub you've gone too far.
