The Roaches ---- Ramshore Rocks ---  Upper Hulme                                     Peak District

Just outside Leek or if heading the other way just outside Buxton the moorlands of the white peak area of the Peak District offer some great adventures. A great place to learn to climb with some easy climbs to some very technical climbs. The local mountain rescue train in this area. In terms of walks there are some great ones with awsome views. Be prepared for quick changes in the weather and carry basic essentials with you as a minium. Please find a great website with plenty of information about this area at on this site you will also find a list of various walks. In addition there is also a small campsite just at the base of Hen Cloud which is the first picture shown below, this site does have access to facilities about 200m down the road at the farm. The facilities are basic with just a couple of toilets and a couple of wash basins with hot water. However its only £2 per person per night and tent size does not matter. The small site has the Roaches tea rooms more or less opposite it.
