The walk starts in the small village of Denshaw and could be classed as a walk for most seasons. The first reservoir you pass is ‘New Years Bridge’ reservoir (Winter). You cross Spring Hill and pass Summer Hill. It follows part of the Oldham Way to above Castleshaw reservoirs before dropping down to them via part of the Pennine Bridle Way. It continues around the upper reservoir before passing the site of the roman fort. It returns to the start point via rural lanes passing an area which was a grange for an old abbey. After crossing and passing the two seasonal hills it follows part of the Tame Valley Way alongside the river Tame. There are two high points on this walk.
