About this spot
Ramshaw Rocks is the instantly recognisable rocky outcrop that stretches high above the A53, its fingers and claws stretch up into the sky. No doubt, if you have travelled on this road from Leek to Buxton, you will have gazed at them as you drove by.

The ridge runs along the A53 from north to south, with dramatic views over the cliff edges across to the east. Combine this with the rolling heather moorlands towards the Roaches and Shutlingsloe in the west and you have a winning combination for multiple opportunities. There are various characterful formations on the edge including the ‘Winking Man’ which is a formation that looks like a face winking at you as you drive up along the A53.
