'Black Cloughs of Bleaklow' - Bleaklow, Nr the Woodhead Tunnel and Reservoir


The dark, forbidding hulk of Bleaklow often lives up to its name. Indeed, Wainwright described it as "an inhospitable wilderness of peat bogs over which progress on foot is very arduous. Nobody loves Bleaklow. All who get on it are glad to get off". But this is a harsh synopsis for Bleaklow has moments of absolute splendour and, on a fine day, fabulous views. At its eastern end, where the streams of the three Black Cloughs (Near Black Clough, Middle Black Clough and Far Black Clough) cut deep gashes into the landscape and join together to tumble over boulders through birch woodland, the experience belies that bleakness.
