Goyt Valley

At Aussie Dog Care we love our walks around the countryside and Goyt Valley is one of them . It is a beautiful place to go on a long walks with dogs or with the whole family.
“The Goyt Valley is located between Macclesfield and Buxton in the Peak District National Park, England. The valley is close to the Cheshire and Derbyshire county border.The River Goyt that flows through the valley rises high on Axe Edge Moor near the Cat and Fiddle Public House, (the second highest public house in England) and flows north through Taxal, Whaley Bridge and New Mills before joining with the River Tame near Stockport to form the River Mersey. This website concentrates on the area known as the Upper Goyt Valley close to the source of the River Goyt.” From http://www.goytvalley.co.uk/about.htm
Three Walks below from http://www.walkthehills.co.uk/peak%20district/three-goyt-valley-walks-shining-tor-cats-tor-windgather-rocks-taxal-moor.html
“Three walks based around the Goyt Valley’s excellent western ridge, stretching from Shining Tor in the south to Taxal Moor in the north. The walks all start in the valley itself between Fernilee and Errwood Reservoirs, and begin with an ascent to Shining Tor via the Stake Side/Shooter’s Clough ridge, followed by a stroll down the main ridge from Shining Tor to Pym Chair via Cats Tor.

Route 1 then returns via Foxlow Edge to Shooter’s Clough Bridge (as per the Goyt Valley Horseshoe) – this is a short but fantastic walk and probably the best walk when time’s short or as a great introduction to the mighty and all-conquering Goyt Valley

Route 2 continues north from Pym Chair, keeping on the moorland parallel to the minor road, until Windgather Rocks. This is a popular spot for climbers and a good place for a lunch stop. The route then heads east, past Taxal Moor Road and down into the valley. After crossing Mill Clough, a farm track then takes you to Fernilee Reservoir and the return stroll along the old railway line.

Route 3 continues from Windgather Rocks along the ridge of Taxal Moor (access land – no path marked on OS map, but it’s there on the ground) and then east back down to the River Goyt. The route then heads south along the river and Fernilee Reservoir. Great walking in one of the best areas of the Peak District.” From http://www.walkthehills.co.uk/peak%20district/three-goyt-valley-walks-shining-tor-cats-tor-windgather-rocks-taxal-moor.html
