Goyt Valley Walk 15 May 2016 – Meet Report

A grand total of three arrived for the approximate 10 mile round of this stunning valley. A balmy spring day lay ahead affording spectacular views. We began along the shore of Fernilee Reservoir and then ascended steeply via Overton Hall. Just below Windgather Rocks we rewarded ourselves with a short coffee break. A play along the quarry traverse and a short scramble up onto the edge gave us an enjoyable distraction. Onward we trod to Pym’s Chair and Shining Tor, stopping for lunch and also photos at the trig point. Parapenters dipped up and down with the thermals along the way. After bagging the Cheshire county top we admired clear views of Jodrell Bank to the west, Kinder Downfall and Win Hill to the east and the Roaches to the west. A steep descent took us past the remains of Errwood Hall ( a visit for another time) and soon we were joining the edge of Errwood Reservoir and a short march back to the cars. We rounded off the day with a well deserved ice cream. A great day!
