This trail is a good place for beginner hikers (under two hours taking it at a leisurely pace with stop offs). The reservoir is fenced off, and you don’t get to see much of it other than at the eastern point. Show more

This walk is not solely about the ridge. It starts and finishes in softer country dotted with old farms and weavers cottages. Blackstone Edge is 1,323ft high, about half a mile long and runs along the Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire county boundary. The rocks have some appeal for rock climbers. Hollingworth Lake was constructed in 1800 to provide water for the Rochdale Canal. It is currently a mecca for many types of water sports. There are pubs, hotels and a chip shop in the area. The Roman road over Blackstone Edge Moor was well used by packhorse trains carrying wool and barrels of salt in 15 c. until the coming of the canals and turnpike roads. The stone remains are not thought to be Roman as they are less than 200yrs old. The Aiggin Stone on the Lancs/Yorks boarder is a Mediaeval guide stone some 600yrs old. The name Aiggin is said to have derived from the French Aiguillie, a needle.Show more
