Hill-walkers, ramblers, photographers and adventure seekers will revel in the miles of unspoilt moorland, scenic wooded valleys, tranquil reservoirs and rugged peaks and crags that make up the dramatic landscape of Marsden Moor.

The area covers more than 5,000 acres and forms part of the South Pennines; it is also part of the Peak District National Park, home to an abundance of wildlife. The Old Goods Yard exhibition brings the Moor to life and the dramatic 360-degree views at Buckstones will take your breath away. 

Pack a picnic of local produce and head for the hills in search of the remains of the US B-17 ‘Flying Fortress’, which crashed here in 1945. Look out for the Roman road, packhorse bridges and the ‘Stanza Stones’, large stones engraved with poetry. 

Marsden Moor is approximately 20 miles (32 km) from Manchester, which is 2 hours 10 minutes from London by train.
