The Peak District – Exploring the Roaches – Part One

As part of my exploration of the wonderful Peak District, Kevin Hall and Sue Blount have taken me to an area in Staffordshire called The Roaches.

The Roaches (from the French les roches – the rocks) is a prominent rocky ridge above Leek and Tittesworth Reservoir in the Peak District of England. The ridge with its rock formations rises steeply to 1,657 ft.

Along with Ramshaw Rocks and Hen Cloud they form a gritstone escarpment, which is popular with hikers, rock climbers and freerunners. It is often very busy especially at weekends.
