The, Reservoir is absolutely beautiful. The surrounding Woodlands are covered in rhododendrons these are in flower. There is a little stream the meanders down to the reservoir. You can stroll up to the Errwood House ruins and the private cemetery. There is plenty of parking...More

My wife and I, after having visited Buxton, travelled to the Goyt Valley. We very much admired the unique scenery of hills, reservoirs and moorland. And on the way to Kettleshulme we stopped to watch rock climbers ascending the “Windgather Rocks” We loved every minute...More

Travelling through the Peak District, came across the impressive natural Goyt Valley with the River Goyt flowing through. Parts of the valley are gentle flowing through rolling countryside, whilst other cut through steep ravines and gorges. Only wish i'd of had time to explore further!
