walk around the edge with CissyAvidSockWearer08/01/2017
Last hill of Four today and this completes Oldham Co. Walked from a private house in Milnrow (Airbnb) via Moss Gate, Crompton Moor and Shaw side and then took the tram to Derker. I weaved my way up through the estate to reach the Southern end of the ridge. Such a contrast here, on one side is flat as a pancake playing field and on the ridge a spur of wild nature and on the other housing galore. I explored all possible high points, they seemed to be in brambles, A pleasing traverse over the ridge and then on a different line through housing back to Derker to take the tram to Victoria and then Manchester Picadilly for train home.Dazingdale04/12/2016
they were setting up the fireworks and bonfire.on a four mile walk around the area with Shaw Sidejoseph mitchell05/11/2015
Derker to Newhey.Smudge31/10/2015
'Climbed' from low down to the east passing rows of terrace houses with back yards, mixed with newer housing. Walk along crest to top and to mast. Oldham Council host the Big Bang firework display here each November as there are 'panoramic views across Manchester and beyond which means the fireworks display can be seen by residents from miles around'.Surely this fleeting entertainment cant survive council cut backs.Chris Pearson05/08/2015
Parked on Higginshaw Road near junction with Yewbarrow Road, then up obvious track to summit then down hill to mast and beacon.Dugswell201/05/2015
