Before boundary changes in the 1970s this would have been a walk in three counties, West Riding of Yorkshire, Cheshire and Lancashire, although it is all in one county now, Greater Manchester. This is a circular walk from Greenfield (formerly in West Riding of Yorkshire) to Carrbrook, Stalybridge (formerly in Cheshire) via part of Mossley (formerly in Lancashire) and back. The return leg is through the town of Mossley. It starts close to the Huddersfield narrow canal before making a short climb up to the Pennine Bridleway (PBW). It follows the PBW up to the moors above Mossley. The section from Waymark 05 (part-way just after highest point of walk) to Waymark 09 is also part of the Tameside Trail. The section from Waymarks 14 to 17 is also part of the Tame Valley Way. After leaving the PBW the walk uses urban roads to go through Carrbrook and Heyheads before crossing into Mossley. It then follows the old railway line through a wooded area, part of the Tame Valley Way, back to the start point. There are various pubs and cafes on or close to the walk. There are a number of information boards in the Carrbrook area.
