After the washout of last Saturday and yesterday's rain, it was good to see that the forecast for this morning looked promising so we decided to head out for a morning stroll. There was an interesting sounding walk in our Peak District ATP walks book near Errwood Reservoir, which we decided to do. However due to it being graded 5 and the description of the route as muddy in places we opted to take Isabel out in the rucksack carrier rather than the pushchair for a change, especially as it had rained a lot recently.
We set off from the carpark on Goyt's Lane at around 10:30am and headed past a tarn onto the old railway line, under overcast skies, with Isabel in the rucksack. The track was pretty good with good views across the surrounding moorland. Soon the sun broke through the clouds and we reached a blocked off tunnel that marked the end of the good track.
