26th: Moorland Ramble
15 of us, and two dogs, were out for this walk which took us from Glossop onto Bleaklow Head via Swineshew Reservoir and Clough Head. It was a long, but easy ascent to this aptly named wilderness, in cool and cloudy, but dry conditions. After following the Pennine way to "Old Woman" we took the Doctor's Gate path -how do these places get their names?!- and Shelf Brook to Old Glossop where we had a welcome drink at The Queens before completing the walk through Manor Park. Not a bad old tramp!
