Longnor was once a junction of important turnpike roads which crossed the Staffordshire Moors.
We will have fine views of Parkhouse Hill and Chrome Hill which were formed under similar conditions to The Great Barrier Reef in Australia, however this was 350million years ago.
This walk shows off some of the few real peaks in the Peak District.
From Chrome Hilll there are fantastic views across the area, we then enter Dowel Dale before passing through Earl Sterndale with it's infamous pub 'The Quiet Woman'
We then ascend High Wheeldon before heading back to the start at Longnor, and optional pub lunch at Ye olde Cheshire Cheese (for more info click HERE)

Welcome to Stockport Nordic Walking
Here is a little bit about me.
I’ve had a love for the outdoors and history for as long as I can remember. I love walking my dog and being out and about, be that in parks, woodlands, hills or cities.
