I fancied a walk this afternoon so I drove the car the 25 miles from home to Errwood Reservoir in the Goyt Valley. Weather was cool but no wind, but I was concerned about the possibility of low cloud. I used these walking directions. Total about 7 miles and about 750 feet of ascent. Shining Tor is the highest point of modern Cheshire at 559 m (1,834 ft).
