Blue+ FRIDAY Kinder Downfall from Bowden Bridge

28 August 09:30-14:00

Kinder Downfall from Bowden Bridge Friday 28th August 2020
Grade: Blue+ Number of dogs allowed: None


Do not walk if you are feeling unwell. Carry your own hand sanitiser. In case of an emergency ensure you have with you a face mask and first aid pack.

Inevitably, the route will go through gates and over stiles that other people will have touched. It may have narrow sections that mean you will be passing close to other people.

We cross the bridge and go E along the lane to Tunstead Clough Farm then on to open fields. We keep going E climbing steadily before the steeper climb, much of it stepped, on to Kinder Low, our highest point.

It’s now a northly direction along the moor to Kinder Downfall, which, last time I was here was in full flow, spectacular. Try not to get your feet wet when we cross the stream at the top.

We now turn westerly passing Sandy Heys before a short steep descent to the top of William Clough. Here we turn to the south making our way down the clough criss crossing the stream until we reach Kinder Reservoir. The path takes us alongside reservoir before the final stretch along the lane.

Poles will be useful if the streams are running high.
