It passed through the picturesque Longdendale valley which includes five reservoirs surrounded by high moorland. The reservoirs were completed in 1877 & were, at the time, the largest artificial expanse of water in the world. The line itself was closed in 1981 amid much controversy.

The Longdendale Trail is waymarked by named discs. For more walks that include a section of this trail see The Longdendale Trail.
