The Goyt Valley lies in the west of the Peak District National Park on the Derbyshire/Cheshire border close to the towns of Buxton and Macclesfield.
The river Goyt rises on the moors of Axe Edge, near the River Dane and the Cat and Fiddle Inn. It flows northwards through steep rocky cloughs and is the main feeder for the Errwood and Fernilee Reservoirs. The Goyt itself becomes a tributary of the River Mersey after merging with the Etherow and Tame at Stockport.
In the Goyt Valley you can find high moorland, river and valley scenery with the man-made additions of the Fernileee and Errwood reservoirs. Read more at Goyt Valley in Derbyshire
