Attractions near Holme Moss

Black Hill1.84km from Holme Moss

Black Hill is a fairly featureless grassy hill to the west of Malham Tarn which has just enough prominence to qualify for the list of Fours. The top of the hill is unmarked by cairn or trig point. The highest point seems to be a very slight but obvious grassy mound on the western side of the top. Black Hill has few of the eroded rocks which are such a feature of Kinder and Bleaklow.

Torside Reservoir6.63km from Holme Moss

Torside Reservoir is the largest man-made lake in Longdendale in north Derbyshire. It was constructed by John Frederick Bateman between April 1849 and July 1864 as part of the Longdendale chain to supply water from the River Etherow to the urban areas of Greater Manchester.

Wessenden Valley7.62km from Holme Moss

The Wessenden Valley is a moorland valley nestled amidst the Dark Peak, immediately south of the large village of Marsden in the English county of West Yorkshire. The valley was formed by retreating glaciers at the end of the last ice age and continues to be cut by the Wessenden Brook, a tributary of the River Colne.  The valley is occupied by four reservoirs, namely Wessenden Head, Wessenden, Blakeley, and Butterley, the largest.

Dovestone Reservoir7.83km from Holme Moss

Dovestone Reservoir lies at the convergence of the valleys of the Greenfield and Chew Brooks above the village of Greenfield, on Saddleworth Moor in Greater Manchester, England. The reservoir is on the western edge of the Peak District National Park. It supplies drinking water to the surrounding area and is a tourist attraction, providing several walks amongst picturesque landscapes.

Bleaklow7.98km from Holme Moss

Bleaklow is a high, largely peat-covered, gritstone moorland, just north of Kinder Scout, across the Snake Pass, in the Derbyshire High Peak near the town of Glossop.   It is one of three summits on this plateau above 2,000 feet, the others being Bleaklow Stones, some 1.9 miles to the east along an indefinite ridge, and Higher Shelf Stones. One of the nice trekking destinations and also you can spend some good times here.
