Many people plan their Pennine Way adventures over the winter period, and this may affect Trail users in the early summer of 2020. If you are walking south to north Torside Dam comes at the end of your first day just before the campsite at Crowden.

United Utilities will be carrying out grouting work on Torside Dam, near Crowden, starting in March 2020. This will require the temporary closure of the footpath across the top of the dam as the entire dam will be closed off for safety purposes.

A diversion will be in place for 6 months including May, June and July, which is a popular time for Pennine Way walkers.

The route will be well signed and follow tracks to the crest of Rhodeswood Reservoir Dam and then back towards Crowden where you will rejoin the Trail on the north side of the Torside Dam. This will add 1.8 miles (2.9 km) to the route if you have started at Edale and are planning to stay at the campsite at Crowden. At the end of a long hard day this is not welcome news!

If you intend to use accommodation in Padfield then the diversion will not add to the distance walked.
