810 Greenbooth and Naden Reservoirs

So close to Rochdale yet the Upper Naden Valley is in deepest countryside. Disturbed only by circling windmills on the surrounding high moors, this sheltered valley makes a good walk at any time of the year with easy paths, though you'll notice the steps. Perhaps that explains why there were a lot of people at the dam, but not many at the far end of the valley. Still it's much better than going to the gym!
