723 Tintwistle Knarr

Enjoyment of Tintwistle Moor has, for a long time, been tinged with the uneasy feeling that you might be seeing it for the last time. But now a Mottram bypass over these moors has been axed and lovers of the wild open country can relax. The climb is suitably rewarded by a magnificent view over Longdendale so get up among the heather and dance a jig at Lad's Leap
