During Terry's High 5 fell race from Macclesfield Forest.burwellian11/07/2024

12.8 mile circular from Derbyshire Bridge car park. Up to Cat & Fiddle then following a permissive path into Chest Hollow. THIS PATH HAS BEEN CLOSED half way down the hollow so we had to follow trails to the road north. Not too hard. We followed the road to Bottom-of-the-Oven and up to the Macclesfield Forest taking the path over Buxtors Hill onto Shutlingsloe (4th time bagged), descending to Wildboarclough following moorland paths across to the lovely Three Shire Heads. We then followed sometimes boggy paths up to Axe Edge Moor (3rd time bagged) descending back to the car park. 757m ascent. Cold, sunny then cloudy conditions. A few people about. Nice views.DanTrig26/12/2023

From Trentabank Reservoir. My third visit but donít know dates for the previous occasionsrfoster17/04/2021
Parked in the marked parking at SJ 980 681. Walked N along the road, taking the private road (but public FP) towards Shutingsloe Farm. Just before the farm, headed steeply WNW up FP to grand summit of Shutlingloe (great views). Headed NNW down west side to forest. Then along permissive track to SJ 966 703, where I crossed wall with double BWF taking a short and quick route across non access land to High Moor summit (hardly worth the effort) and back the same way. 7.8km with 440m ascent in 2h25m.
