Sunday Stroll: Hobson Moor


Today's photo was taken on the same walk as the photo that appeared here two weeks ago. The tree in the centre of the photo is near the stile that features in that previous photo.

This is looking back a little further up the hill in an area known as Hobson Moor. The extra height gives a wider view across the Longdendale Valley. Behind the tree is Arnfield Reservoir and behind that, strung out along the A628 Woodhead Road is the village of Tintwistle.

Beyond Tintwistle is Bottoms Reservoir and to the right of that is the small town of Hadfield. The backdrop is formed by the mass of Bleaklow, part of the Pennine chain.

  1. Rambling - I was born in Manchester and left when I was 12 years old but I remember my Dad would cut out "rambling routes" from the Manchester Evening News. We would catch a bus and toddle off, many times to Glossop and follow the rambling route. I must admit being out in the countryside wasn't my idea of fun but looking back we had quality family time spent together in the fresh air away from the smoke filled air of Manchester. My Dad had foresight and later on we eventually moved to Glossop. Today's photo reminded me so much of those happy days. Many thanks Martin for another great shot.
