The Peak District has everything that a rambler could wish for. From limestone gorges and river-cut valleys to open moorland and gritstone escarpments, it offers some of the most diverse landscapes in the country. There's a reason it was made the first National Park in the UK! And among its many beautiful highlights is the Goyt Valley, famed for its panoramic views over wooded slopes and wide stretches of moorland.

The River Goyt rises on Axe Head Moor and flows northwards, feeding into the Errwood Reservoir. Built in 1967, the Reservoir provides drinking water for Stockport town and the surrounding area. Thousands of visitors come every year to walk around the reservoir banks and soak in the views across the valley. But there's a darker side to the Reservoir's story. When it was built in the mid-20th century, whole communities had to be destroyed, and the small hamlet of Goyt's Bridge was entirely submerged by the flooding.

This design gives you a taste of the beautiful Derbyshire landscape, with rolling pastel-green hills tumbling into the Goyt Valley. The banks of the reservoir are laced with coniferous woodland, and dark moorland rises up in the distance - a beautiful scene to enjoy as you dry your dishes!

Half Panama organic bleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48cm x 70cm. Machine wash at 40 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
