Head for Leek and then take the Buxton Road. The left turn you need is not marked. It is rather less then 2 miles past Hulme, but if you see a pub called "The Winking Man" on your right then you are just overshooting the turn! You need to turn L at the crossroads just before the pub. After making this turn you need to fork R at 350m and then fork L in another 650m. At the T-junction at the foot of a steep hill turn L then fork L.
