Brief Description

Starting at the Fairholmes Visitor Centre Cafe we walk past the Derwent dam along the Derwent reservoir, past Tin Town to the Howden Dam. We continue along the Reservoir to the west end bus stop where we swing off to climb up through the trees to Fagley Clough, past the shooting butts and on up to Alport Castles (the largest land slip in the UK). Here we follow the ridge with extensive views to Edale and the Derwent Edges. Down and across Rowlee Pasture then through the trees and back to Fairholmes. Please note the car park is "pay and display" (approx £4.50)
