5 miles; 2 hours. Easy to moderate difficulty – no climbs.
Take the 901 bus to Blackstone Edge, and walk in the opposite direction to the bus route down towards the White House pub, OL15 0LG, Tel: 01706 378456.
Just after passing Blackstone Edge reservoir on your right, leave the road through a small side gate by a locked gate. Follow the signs for the Pennine Way (PW) keeping the reservoir on your right. This route stays on the PW all the way to Stoodley Pike so is easy to follow. After a little more than a mile, a slight detour will reward you with sight of the Rain Stone (see www.stanzastones.co.uk). The path then passes Light Hazzles and Warland reservoirs – keep to the side of these and continue as walk 2 to the monument.
