Highlights

A contrasting and unique walk on the Peak District’s Western Edge.
We start off along a quiet country lane and soon reach lovely oak woods and a visit to Lud’s Church, an amazing 15m deep green chasm in the ground, covered in moss and ferns. Lud’s Church is widely accepted as being the setting of The Green Chapel in the 14th century poem “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight”, now a new blockbuster movie. Lud’s Church was also a secret location of worship frequented by the Lollards around the same time. From Lud’s Church we continue through the woods and up over the open moors to Roach End. After reaching Roach End we follow a well made path along the spine of The Roaches, a popular climbing area which provides great views across Cheshire and Staffordshire on a clear day. After passing the high point of the day at 505m we gradually head down the ridge, an area currently undergoing extensive work by the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust to help protect and regenerate this important peat moorland habitat. Finally we head back over The Roaches and continue along a lower scenic ridge to the Hanging Stone (pictures below). After taking in the view here we head back to Gradbach.
