Gems of the Peak

The Roaches

The Roaches in Staffordshire is a Peak District gem; located above Leek and Tittesworth Reservoir, it’s loved by hikers and climbers alike. The impressively rugged and steep gritstone ridge is home to mythical mermaids and 15 metre natural gritstone clefts, so this is far more than your average countryside walk.

It groups together two main gritstone outcrops, ‘Ramshaw Rocks’ famous for the ‘Winking Man’ rock formation and ‘Hen Cloud’ offering stunning panoramic views. With panoramic scenery which, on a clear day allows you to see much of Cheshire, Winter Hill in Lancashire and even Snowdon in Wales!
