Dovestones is a hidden gem not far from Manchester on the edge of the Peak District. It has a good path suitable for wheelchairs around the main reservoir which is two and a half miles to walk around alone. Other paths lead up the hillside where you can enjoy tougher, longer walks with better views. Recently a lot of signposts have been installed to improve health and safety and remind people not to drop litter and to keep their dog's on a lead around sheep.

Great walk up to Chew Reservoir with dog.
Mostly tarmac surface so easy walking but steep in places.
