It's amazing how quickly you can leave the city for some wild moorland. Saddleworth Moor is just ten miles from the centre of Manchester, but feels like another world. This route, which starts in Greenfield, circuits the reservoirs near the town before heading out onto the moor, through which the Pennine Way passes. Crowded country it may be, but the countryside is never far away.
