Superb view over a surprisingly leafy landscape: Mellor Moor looks impressive.Wycombe Wanderer15/06/2020
(4th visit) Solo wander in the hot sun leaving L working in Romily for the day. Familiar lovely terrain with the add on of an explore down a semi dried up Goyt river bed to visit the County Tri-Point of Derbyshire/Cheshire/Greater Manchester.Chris Pearson25/05/2020
Out and back again along the lovely canal on our 'new normal' regular 4 hour morning walk with the dogs. Walked up along the ridge through the leafy victorian graveyard of Marple Church. Great views as ever in both directions. From summit carried on steeply down the fp to rejoin canal. To our horror Poppy our litle rescue spaniel bit a passing staffy on it bottom - which spun round, looked surprised, dropped it stick and ran off !Chris Pearson04/05/2020
2nd visit. A lovely sunny 4.5 hr circular dog walk with the spaniels & L from the house. Out along the fascinating Peak Forest Canal crossing the 100 ft tall graceful Marple Viaduct and up alongside the 16 Marple locks -each raising the water by around 13 feet - to gain 209 ft in 1.5 mile -taking @ 3 hrs minimum for a boat in a rush. High point of fp as high as stable round the back -with a piano inside the house window. A tump with a piano on the top - something to sing about. Back across deserted golf courses - Covid-19 lockdown -although grass cutting in full swing - is that essential?Chris Pearson17/04/2020
Summit indiscernible due to housing. Settled for the highest point of the public footpath between the houses,moorsman04/03/2020
From car park up road, between house on FP and then other potential HPsPeterD06/10/2018

I think the summit is in somebody's garden by a bench at 96293 87034.clivevilla15/05/2018
Almost drive by. Parked 50 yards north of footpath.BobHancock12/04/2018
In between houses in the dark of early morning having driven up from Leicestershire. Nocturnal urban bagging must appear highly suspicious to sane people.Campbell Singer26/02/2018
Along twitten between houses to stables area. 2 very friendly horses thought I had something for them and hemmed me in very efficiently! Took a while to free myself as didn't want to walk behind them.jonglew23/01/2018
Visited all 3 tops. Alt.1 - via gate @ SJ 964 868 and Alt.2 - via FP to north and unexpected path to wall and summit from SJ 963 871carole engel01/01/2018
Parked in carpark SJ 96463 86711 and visited all potential high points. Round the back of the cottages by shed stable seemed most likely.David Evans13/02/2017
Fantastic walk from Disley Hill across the golf course and along the canal followed by a stiff ascent of Marple Ridge. Superb views of Mellor Moor.John Eley05/01/2017
2nd hill of three on a route from Romiley station to New Mills (Packhorse Inn) climbing Turncliff wood then after a stop at the Railway Inn near Rose Hill station i continued through an estate over the canal, past the Goyt Mill and into Marpleridge. Agree with Ayejimmy, high point via fp and round back. I also visited alternative where road descends there is a gate and i got 210m on my gps there. I followed the edge down and then had to climb down a wall onto the road with many thanks to a Hawthorn tree branch. Continued route to Mellor Moor via Strines station...Dazingdale10/12/2016
Almost a drive by.arranc23/08/2016
A roadway tump. Posted just to south briefly on new entrance to driveway down to the west. Walked up the road and into the little eastern pathway between houses that seemed to be highest point marginally.vegibagger25/05/2016
Solo....From Memorial Park Marple (Free Parking Sundays) along Peak Forest Canal, up to ridge then on to Disley Hill, return via High lane and Macclesfield Canal.Dave13/03/2016
Disley to Marple. Visited all 3 contending ring contours - horses seemed keen to nibble at all navigational aids.Smudge30/10/2015
As described by Aye JimmyRobertP13/08/2015
Wide commanding views out over Manchester to the west and to the Pennine hills behind. A good place to live to be able to watch rain storms sweeping in from the south west over the city and sunsets. A surprised horse looked at me from its small stable (probably wondering why it was seeing so many strangers these days) as I appeared at the highpoint around the back of the houses off the fp.Chris Pearson31/07/2015
Walked up from New Mills alongside the canal. There's a nice seat with a great view of Manchester close to the summit - highest point behind some houses, with some horses.DanHolme24/07/2015
As per Aye JimmyBramley30/04/2015
Handy car park a bit further S. Went to point described by Aye Jimmy although footpath itself may be as high.RHW01/11/2014
Decided that this wasn't quite a drive-by and that the highest point was round the back of the summit house (Ridge Cottage). Gained this by f/p to R of this cottage, over stile after 20m, then back L around the back to green area by sheds.Aye Jimmy20/09/2014
Drive to top with friendly horses.PeteF28/12/2013
nice wander around the ridgeAvidSockWearer15/06/2013
Driven along here a few times and worth a walk down to canal tow-path.Dugswell203/02/2012
Nice stroll along the road with a detour to the top. Very pleasant views when the weather is nice.Jake99407/12/2007
