Marsden to Deer Hill and Blackmoorfoot

2022-02-19 10:30:00 2022-02-19 16:30:00 Europe/London Marsden to Deer Hill and Blackmoorfoot

OS maps OL21 and 288.

I last led this walk on 03.02.18.

From Marsden the ascent to Deer Hill Reservoir is mostly gradual. On a clear day you get good views of the valley, and as you head towards Blackmoorfoot Reservoir you get a view of Victoria Tower on Castle Hill in the distance.

After descending to Linthwaite the return to Marsden is along the canal towpath (this is a very gradual uphill section which passes various canal locks).

The terrain is a mixture of paved footpaths, farm tracks, grassy fields and canal towpaths. There is one small section of road without a footpath. There are several road crossings for which you will be responsible for your own safety.
