Parked on the road junction to the south and went up to the right of the wall. I cannot imagine why it was thought the Germans might attack through the Peak District although nobody expected them to attack through the Ardennes in 1940.clivevilla23/07/2019

8.9 mile walk from parking at old piece of road at Cisterns Clough. Walked SE down single track road following paths to Fairthorn farm, up to Thirkelow Rocks, then along single track roads to High Edge, down lane to Booth farm up onto Hollins Hill (good view of Chrome Hill), along lanes to Tenterhill farm and along small roads through Hillend farm down Manifold Trail (fairly unused)to Black Bank farm, across main road to Northfield farm and Flash, up to Oliver Hill and across to Axe Edge (small path) back to car. Sunny for most of the time until we got to Oliver Hill then we thought we'd get soaked (no coats) but the rain was pathetic in the end. Then drove to Grin Low to bag and Combs Head to bag. 12 miles all together, nice day.DanTrig23/09/2016
Near line of ww 2 pill boxes defending wartime RAF munitions dump for bombs and chemical weapons, protected within in a series of tunnels served by railway lines. Then part sold in 1960s to be a mushroom farm! Now part houses HSE test labs for rolling stock, including London Underground. Hillend quarry is a venue for live exhibitions of mining, quarrying and recycling plant, The eastern end appear to be an active quarry. All surpringly interesting.
