Sunday was spent down in Dovedale in South Peak district again but now even more westward. A new part for us. Since I still had the cold no advanced hikes were done :/ We visited Goyt Valley and just wander around the reservoir which was a 7km rather simple walk with short slopes.
Very nice nature with surrounding moors and woodlands around the reservoir.
This hike was chosen from a book we have in which they also recommended a loop to drive around the area. The drive takes you up on the bare moors and down the valley, for approx an hour.
Would recommend the area, but nothing there beats the Dark Peaks :)
Next blog will be about gray seals at Donna Nook.
