Day walk from Meerbrook with L, John, and borrowed Josie the old and stiff Jack Russell who had a top speed of 1mph. Up and down the same way then walked to the magnificent Roaches to climb on the superb boulders.Chris Pearson16/06/2018
Congleton - The Cloud - Long Edge - The Bent - Gun - Hillswood Hill - Leek. Snow most of the day, 2-3 inches lying everywhere and hills in thick cloud.Mark Jackson09/12/2017
bit of bother with farmer's wife - note on windscreen, etc. as per Campbell Singer.arranc21/08/2017
4th hill of 5 today on a route from the Cat and Fiddle pub to Leek. I got the Ramblers Coach from Nottingham. Climbed Whetstone Ridge, Gradbach Hill and the Roaches and then a series of tricky paths to reach Meersbrook prior to which I had my own Buzzard screech and swoop routine. It must have had chicks nearby but got a great pic of it swooping towards me! At Meersbrook, I followed the Staffordshire Moorland walks path to North Hillswood using track that continues in a N Easterly direction before veering off a short distance to reach summit on edge of Scots Pine coppice. Descended NW over a wall then through woodland meandering through a path of sorts to reconnect with the Staffs Moorland walks and I followed this all the way into Leek, following route SE to Buxton road, heading for Kniveden Hill.Dazingdale09/07/2017
From North. Very straightforward. Reasonable views. Though the Resv is less visible than expected.stig_nest19/05/2017
Five Tump walk around Leek taking in Longsdon Hill, Hillswood Hill, Kniveden Hill, Revedge Hill and Ferny Hill. Traversed hill via footpath from Abbey Green, which passes almost over the summit. Good views over the reservoir to The Roaches.davidpettit8404/03/2017
