4. Etherow Goyt Valley Way

The Etherow Goyt Valley Way is a 15 mile footpath linking Vernon Park in Stockport with the Longdendale Trail in the Peak District near Hadfield.

It passes through riverside meadow and many areas of fine woodland. It has constantly changing and extensive views, especially in the middle section where the Way runs high above the valley.

History is brought to life in many interesting reminders of the Industrial Revolution, and wildlife enthusiasts will find much to enjoy.
