Walk: Turton Tower, Chapeltown, Wayoh Reservoir, Stone Circle on Cheetham Close.
Start Point: Jumbles car park Grid Reference: SD 729 141
Distance: 7.7 miles Ascent: 1,150 feet
Time: 4.5 hours    
Weather: Sunny, breezy and cold with frost still in frost hollows after lunch.
Comments: 28 walkers kept warm at a good pace on mainly good paths. Cheetham Close was wet, but not unduly so given recent weather. The views off the top were superb.

Jumbles Reservoir was full. It must have rained!
