A Walk from Tittesworth 2017

Walk Leader: Brian Thorne
Total Distance: 10 miles app
Total Ascent: 1824 ft
'A' Route anti clockwise

The Roaches

Leaving the Visitor Centre, we head for the gap between Hen Cloud and the Roaches ridge, climbing to our high point of the day above the magnificent gritstone cliffs. Dropping down into the woods above Black Brook, we pass through the Chasm of Lud’s Church before contouring round to the Hanging Stone.

Hanging Stone

Contouring round the cross above Swythamley Hall, we join the minor road for one mile before climbing a little more steeply to the summit of “Gun.” A fine prospect of the Roaches lies across the valley as we descend towards Meerbrook and refreshment at “The Lazy Trout” before the 600yd stroll back to the coach
