A good walk: Win Hill and Ladybower

default A good walk: Win Hill and Ladybower

Post by Chilli-head on 3rd November 2015, 1:28 pm

We managed to be fantastically lucky to pick not only the warmest November day on record, but also avoid the mist and fog shrouging much of the country on Sunday to do this walk.

Growing up in Sheffield, I've often gazed across at the peak at the other side of Ladybower resevoir and wondered what was up there.  Time to find out !

Setting out from the Yorkshire Bridge pub, we headed down to the bridge, then up Parkin Clough.  From there it is straight up to the top.  And I mean straight up - the 300m of ascent to the peak at 463m is made in only a kilometer or two.  But so worth the effort. It is a proper rocky peak, with magnificent vews from Stanage edge to the east, to Lose Hill and beyond to Mam tor in the west.

View across Lose Hill and Mam Tor beyond, whilst descending the back of Win Hill:

After late lunch at the top, we continued down the other side of the hill, turning right into the woods, then back along the shores of Ladybower resevoir.  We were starting to lose the sun by now, but the mist hanging over the water added to the atmosphere:

Then back across the dam wall, returning to the very inviting Yorkshire Bridge Inn for a beer and dinner.
