Starting from Fairholmes Visitor Centre we first follow the eastern side of Derwent reservoir, before the dam we ascend through the Abbey Tip Plantation to follow the open ground above the Abbey Brook.
We circle round Howden Dean to Sheepfold Clough, here we branch off left still with the Abbey Brook along the narrow path contouring round Cartledge Bents towards Flint Hill.
At the ford we turn south and cross the open moor along the Cartledge Stones Ridge to Back Tor, descend to Bradfield Gate Head then follow the open path past Green Sitches to descend Walkers Clough back to the reservoir.
Distance: 11 miles
