2 Glossop district - Sheet Explanation for sheet E86

Sorry, not available

Sheet Explanations provide a brief description and interpretation of the geology of the relevant BGS 1:50 000 scale map sheet area. More detailed geological information for the same area is available via the Sheet Descriptions. Sheet Explanations are printed A5 booklets and are available either singly, or as a pack together with the relevant 1:50 000 scale map, where this map is available. The district lies in parts of the Kirklees Metropolitan District of West Yorkshire, the Barnsley and Sheffield Metropolitan Districts of South Yorkshire, the High Peak District of Derbyshire, and the Tameside District and Oldham Metropolitan District of Greater Manchester. The main population centres are in the west of the district, including Mossley, Stalybridge, Hyde and Glossop, and in the north-east, including Holmfirth and Penistone. These towns are separated by areas of farmland and scattered villages. Large tracts of moorland and valleys present in the north-western, central and southern parts of the district are sparsely populated. The upland moors form parts of the South Pennines and the Dark Peak, occurring respectively to the north and south of Longdendale. Within the Dark Peak, Bleaklow Hill forms the highest point within the district at 633 m above Ordnance Datum. The district is drained by the upper reaches of a number of rivers, including the Holme, Dearne, Don, Derwent, Etherow and Tame. These rivers and their tributary streams have been dammed to form a large number of reservoirs, supplying water for public consumption and industrial usage. Many of these reservoirs now also provide important recreational amenities.
