Helen Thornhill from Move More Glossop, a community partnership project led by The Bureau, encourages more of us to get fit by building activity into our everyday lives. Together, her and Clare Savory take a popular loop around Bottoms Reservoir to talk about who, why and how she helps people get started - no matter their mobility. Plus, they bump into a local chap called Jimmy by chance - who it turns out used to work on the reservoirs some 30+ years ago. He shares a few tales about climbing down the steps in the valve houses and walking the aqueducts underneath the waterways to clear the silt and tree roots! Plenty more info about the groups Helen talks about, including the Reservoir Ramblers here: https://the-bureau.org.uk/move-more-glossop/ The Longdendale Tales project was supported by Glossop Creates as part of their Pairings programme, matched with Matt Ross at the Peak District National Park’s Longdendale Environmental Centre in Tintwistle.
