Observation point west peak district

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I'm travelling up to glossop area tomorrow for work and staying over night.

Can anyone recommend a good observation point on that side of the peak district to do some stargazing??

Somewhere i can park up and possibly get the telescope out.

Thanks

If you take the A57 Snake Pass out of Glossop, it leads you in the heart of the Peak District. I observe from the Northern end of park, outside of Ashbourne (a place called Ilam).

If you follow the A57 for around 11 miles, you will reach the upper end of Ladybower Reservoir, and there are plenty of places to park up around there.

Hope the skies are clear for you!
