Roach End Barn is a fantastic photography location found at the end of The Roaches on the Staffordshire side of the Peak District. The Roaches is a gritstone edge that is itself a great location for photography with subject matter perfectly positioned for shooting at both sunrise and sunset. This guide focuses on Roach End Barn, but will also get you to The Roaches if you would like to shoot here.
While recently shooting at Padley Gorge in the Peak District I found I’d missed the best of the autumn colours and wider shots didn’t quite seem to work. Chatting to a couple of walkers I discovered I’d overshot by two weeks, but rather than give up it was a case of tackling the location in a different way.
