About this location

Lying just over a mile to the north-east of Stalybridge, this country park centres on two areas. Firstly, the Brushes Show more… Valley, with its four reservoirs running up into the Pennine Moors, and secondly Carrbrook, lying in the shadow of Buckton Castle a 12th/13th century stronghold. Linking the two areas, although outside the Country Park boundaries, is a good rights of way network, which also takes visitors into the Tame Valley, Longdendale and the Peak District.

Castle Clough and Cowbury Dale is a Local Nature Reserve.
This is part of the northernmost valley leading down from the moors above Stalybridge, where heather moor mingles with developing oak and wet willow woodland either side of the brook. The ponds in the valley are now all that remains of the once industrial Carrbrook.
