This is a walk just outside the Peak District National Park around the town of Mossley. It starts at the car park for the railway station before following some suburban roads to reach farming countryside. The first climb takes you up through bushes and trees to reach a road which is crossed before dropping down into a valley. There is then a second climb to reach Hartshead Pike, where there is an interesting structure. From the pike the walk crosses some fields and another road before climbing to pass a trig point. The walk continues across and down fields to reach a disused quarry and the remains of a brick-works. Another road is crossed before the last climb over a hill before walking along some rural roads and across fields to reach the Huddersfield Narrow Canal. Continue along the canal and up two more roads to reach the start point.

This walk follows part of the Tameside Trail and the Oldham Way. Important Note: the section of the Tameside Trail from Waymark 20 to 23 does not follow the map. This section is marked by signposts and follows the official downloaded path from Tameside Council.
