Awesome views

Awesome. You'll almost be fed up of pausing to take pictures. Walked up Hen Cloud, then over to the longer ridge & on to Lud's Church to be picked up at Gradbach.

The best of the peaks, with great views
Aug 2021
The best of the peaks, with great views, lovely walking and dramatic landscape. Recommend a circular walk across here from Gradbach and/or Goldsitch. Good boldering.

Stunning scenery
Aug 2021
Lovely, easy walking. Short routes and longer hikes. The parking could be tricky in the lay-bys but there is all day parking in the field next to the tea-rooms,

Amazing views
Aug 2021
Bit of a climb up at the start. Definitely worth it as amazing views over Tittesworth Resevoir and towards Manchester and Macclesfield.

Stunning walk and views
Jun 2021
Lovely walk, if a bit strenuous, with fabulous views. We also took in the amazing Lud's church, on the return stretch of the walk, which is quite beautiful. (not a church at all, but I don't want to spoil the surprise!

The walk started with a tramp up Hens cloud, then on to the Roaches. The views are terrific, We walked the ridge then did a loop to visit St Luds Church on the way back. Pity the rain spoiled the last couple of mile back to the car!

Excellent Location with Great Views
Apr 2021
Visited when staying at the Camping and Caravanning site at Blackshaw Moor near Leek. It was a superb 10 mile round trip hike from the campsite, across country via Lower Blackshaw Farm and Whitty Lane up to Hen Cloud. From there its an excellent north west trek following the Roaches ridge past Doxy Pool to the Trig point before turning back. Superb views of Tittesworth Reservoir. Plenty of places to stop for a picnic with a view. There is limited roadside parking that runs below the Roaches albeit it gets full very quickly. It is worth noting that it is not a bad walk from the reservoir Visitor Centre where there is ample parking, toilets etc.

Views to die for

Escaping to the countryside is good for the soul and a trip to The Roaches is such a great way to escape. On a clear day you can see not only Tittesworth reservoir in the valley, but across to Jodrell bank in Cheshire. The peace and quiet, the fresh air, wonderful

Parking ticket
Oct 2020 • Friends
Visited today, parked opposite tearoom not blocking, not obstructing anywhere, no pay and display. Spent 45 minutes in the Tearoom. Returned to car and discovered parking fine notice which had been issued 5 minutes after we arrived. Non existent signage about restricted parking as per previous poster has written on 16/9/20. Beware, this is opportunistic & a cynical ploy to extract revenue from unsuspecting visitors to this beautiful area. Tainted a good day.

Great Place, Parking Beware!
Sep 2020
Mainly writing this review because their doesn't seem to be many mentions of the council using it as a parking ticket trap and visitors need to know.

On a sunny weekend the parking laybys are woefully inadequate for the number of people trying to visit, so inevitably they park on the grass at the side of the road. The whole road is a 'no stopping' zone outside of the laybys but the signs are pretty far apart.

The day I went there literally 100s of cars were being given tickets for parking on the side of the road so don't do it unless the walk is worth £35 to you!

Why 5 out of 5 still? It's a stunning place where you can put together a hike that mixes the great views from the Roaches with woodland and an amazing chasm called 'Luds Church'.
