A further exploration around the headwaters of the Derwent Valley is planned and this time we head upstream with the Derwent itself in close proximity. As Derwent swings westwards to its source at Swains Greave, as located on UDV2, we head onto the Bleaklow plateau and Featherbed Moss. Following the eastern watershed we cross undulating peat moor, interspersed with many gritstone outcrops until reaching the Abbey Brook, which we followed uphill on UDV1, and make our descent back to Fairholmes. Coach up from Midlands, please book early
