Thanks to the work of the Forestry Commission in clearing a lot of the fir trees, there are now some great views across the valley from the first section, along the wide woodland track.

And the return path, alongside the western shore of the reservoir, is always enjoyable. Particularly when the sun is shining through the trees!

Having just completed the video for walk 17 around Foxlow Edge, I thought I’d crack on and complete the one for walk 18 – an easy circular stroll around the paths to the west of Fernilee Reservoir.

This completes all the videos for the walks featured on the website – as at June 2018. There are a few walks I’d still like to add, but I must admit that I’m running out of ideas for new ones.

So if you can suggest any of your favourites – that aren’t already included here – please do get in touch, either by leaving a comment below, or by sending me a message via the contact form.

Walk 18 is a favourite of mine. At just 2.5 miles and circular, it’s a nice easy length if you just want a quick tonic of fresh Peak District air. It’s also an idea route for dog-walkers.
