About Goyt's Moss

Goyt's Moss lies in the wild and beautiful Goyt Valley, its steep slopes sweep down into the tranquil waters of the Fernlee Reservoir and the Errwood Reservoir, which is dotted with sailing boats in the summer. The area is renowned for delightful walks, and for the ancient sport of fell racing.

The region was once busy with farms, coalfields, and in the distant past even a gunpowder factory. A noted feature often visited by hikers is the romantic ruinous Errwood Hall. Deserted when the valley was flooded to create the reservoir, the picturesque 18th century house surrounded by banks of rhododendrons is now preserved as a ruin.

This is an idyllic area for anyone who enjoys an almost limitless variety of scenery, it has secretive wooded places for wildlife and silvery streams flowing into the reservoir at the valley bottom.
