A short bimble round Eyam Moor, on Sir William Hill.
A lot of the walks we do, especially around the Longshaw Estate faces this hill, so we decided one day to go take a look in the opposite direction.
We parked at the end of the Sir William Hill Road byway that leads to the transmitter mast on the hill top.
Clambering over the wall stile we then followed the wall to a junction of paths overlooking Bretton Clough.
Leaving the wall we climbed uphill past Ring Cairn and regained the old byway just below the trig point and transmitter station, before turning downhill and returning to the car.

Points to note
- These walks are listed as a record of walks that we have done. If you wish to follow them then you do so at your own risk.
- Distances given are those recorded on our GPS as Track Distance.
Actual distance walked may be slightly longer, due to the way that the two distances are calculated. This article explains why.
- Times given may or may not include breaks.
- You'd expect on a circular walk that the Ascent and Descent values would be the same, right?
Well, yes, but sometimes I didn't stop the track at the exact same place I started it, and also sometimes it takes a while to get a strong enough 3D fix for a reasonably accurate altitude setting.
- Any photos shown will be of the ground covered by the walk, but may cover more than one visit.
