An ideal place to savour the dramatic landscape of Marsden Moor. It presents magnificent views across the Upper Colne Valley, to the beginnings of the River Colne and out to Pule Hill and Millstone Edges; a rock formation that spans a large distance.

An impressive rocky outcrop offering incredible 360 degree views over much of the estate. A fantastic place to visit when the sun is beating down on it, but equally as spectacular on a day when there is snow on the ground.

This scheduled ancient monument lies on the edge of the moorland, at the confluence of two streams. Dating back to the 17th-century, Eastergate Bridge is an old packhorse bridge once used by Galloway ponies to transport baskets of wool from Huddersfield to Rochdale.

A wild and remote valley looking down across Blakeley and Butterley reservoirs. There are often fantastic sunsets here. It is also a great place to spot moorland birds such as golden plover, grouse, curlew and twite, which all breed here in good numbers.
A road of historical importance, Thieves Clough is the route of the first and third turnpikes; toll roads built in 1759 and 1781. The old Roman road came this way and it is also the site of an old engine house. There is evidence of tunnel vents from the canal tunnel through the hillside.
