Up excellent track from A515, into reservoir compound and over broken wall.Campbell Singer11/10/2016
Parking available at the start of the track up to the reservoir (alt 1164ft). Follow this tarmac road as far as the reservoir entrance gate but turn immediately left, following the wall on the pasture side. This eventually enables a quick route up to the summit. 0.69 miles return.moorsman29/01/2016
Three new Tumps on 36km loop around Buxton today. Ascended from the NE via the reservoir track then round LHS of enclosure. Descended SSW to corner of road.davidpettit8423/01/2016
2nd and final hill of today, after Cowlow. From the A6 at 097725 i took the steep fp up to King Sterndale, following minor road to the A515 where i turned right (Nw) crossing A515 at point where disused railway crosses underneath. Climbed fence and headed up to copse which i followed then field edge, over one fence and from there an easy walk over a crumbled wall to the summit. Very misty and atmospheric. Descent to edge of trees at 067713 heading to fp that meets minor road on Harpur hill estate. Followed roads nack into Buxton and caught Transpeak back to Derby. Great day out!!Dazingdale14/09/2015
