The Hamps & Manifold Geotrail

The Hamps & Manifold Geotrail runs from Hulme End along the Manifold Valley, past Apes Tor, Ecton Hill, Wetton Mill and Thor’s cave to Weag’s Bridge. From there it follows the River Hamps to Waterhouses. The 13km route provides easy access since it mostly follows the Manifold Track, a resurfaced section of the old Leek & Manifold Valley Light Railway line. It mostly passes through the Ecton and Milldale Limestone Formations, roughly following the trace of the Ecton Anticline.
