This is an amazing place and so close to Buxton. Best to approach from the northern end. Both roads in and out are quite something. Great dog walking area opposite the sailing club. Would be very colourful in the summer. Well worth a visit.

Lovely walks in the Goyt Valley. Vist the remains of Errwood Hall and geocache as well. Beware of one way system during the summer months if driving - you can only travel south towards the A54 from Errwood car park

Had a lovely drive in Goyt Valley and afternoon walk around Errwood Hall which was beautiful and not too strenuous. Plenty of places to park the car and easy to follow paths to get you safely back at the end of your walk.
