Overview

This walk was set up to commemorate Bert Ward who was a walkers activist and founder of the Ramblers. We will meet in the car park behind the church in Holmesfield and walking in a clockwise direction we will go out onto the moors to the Longshaw Estate. Then use either their cafe or the Fox House pub for a lunch stop. The return walk is over Totley Moor.
