Parking for Featherbed Top and Mill Hill SK 08761 92930 on A57. Featherbed Top first, then down to paved path all the way to Mill Hill.David Evans30/04/2017
From the Birchin Clough car park on the A57. Took the track through Lady Clough forest into Ashop Clough, then track up the dale. Left it at its highest point for a heather slog up to the summit. Walk continued to Mill Hill. With AT and JT on a fine day.marktrengove26/03/2017
From roadside parking on A57. Not very far but rain, thick fog and driving wind meant navigation by compass and GPS hard as we quickly got wet trousers. Should have put on waterproofs earlier. With MartJohn Eley19/02/2017

Nice windy afternoon out on the paved path from Snake Pass - left the path for Featherbed Top then down to Mill Hill, before turning back over the road and heading off across the peat to Higher Shelf Stones. Decided to leave Bleaklow Head for a day when I have time to get across to Alport Moor too :) Caution needed when leaving toward the west - it's on a bit of a blind crest and the layby is angled away from the road, anyone going much above the limit (and there are a few!) will struggle to slow down for youthe_adam30/03/2015

First of three, on to Higher Shelf Stones then Bleaklow Head.BobHancock24/06/2014
My Third summit of almost Five hills visited on a 19 mile cicular from the Snake pass, visiting The Tower at Alport Castles, Alport Moor (bypassing summit) Grains in the water, Bleaklow stones, Bleaklow hill (although missed summit)Wain stones, Hern stones, Higher Shelf stones and then after dropping down and up to gain Doctors gate path to take me onto the PW, it was an easy walk up,Summit area is pretty large but I walked to where spot height is recorded,a short distance from Grouse butt. Exited by taking route across Salvin Ridge (much more wet)down a very steep embankment to gain forestry track, over Lady clough and then over the Ashop to walk parallel to the Snake pass before rejoining it. A fantastic day of Blue sky, Buzzards, Grouse and Scrambling!!Dazingdale18/04/2014
Late start through mist all the way to Mill Hill in case I missed it over 30 years ago, returning via Featherbed Top which was not as wet as I had feared.SS03/04/2014
Circular walk from Birchin Clough Bridge car park (SK 109914). Saukin Ridge, Featherbed Top, Snake Pass, Higher Shelf Stones, Hern Stones, Bleaklow Head, Pennine Way, Doctor,s Gate & Lady Clough. Low cloud & strong wind. Small wooden stake presumed to mark summit, otherwise featureless. Navigation essential. Not a day to linger.Richard Gunn16/03/2014
Ascent on return to A57 layby at Doctor's Gate culvert after visiting Higher Shelf Stones, Hern Stones, Wain Stones and Bleaklow Head returning via Pennine Way. No cairn but there is a small wooden stake sticking out of the ground within the general area which appears to be the top.pwhitaker_196610/08/2013

No marker point for top. Just a large grassy knoll starting at A57 Snake Pass rising over top to other side at bottom of Ashop Clough.SteveSmith14/02/2011
Started at the Grouse then Mill Hill, Featherbed Moss, Bleaklow Head and then back to Glossop via Higher Shelf Stones. Good day but shame the cloud sat stubbornly on the 500m contour and cut all the views.nosdrahcir08/10/2010
