Pendle walk Thursday 11th April 2019

posted in: Walking | 0

On a bright sunny spring morning thirteen walkers set off for Big End from just south on the Nick of Pendle. Skirting above Churn Clough reservoir to ascend Badger Wells Hill via the Deerstones, picking up the ridge walk then heading north easterly along Ogden Clough and onwards to the summit. Work was being undertaken to install an ‘art work’ around the trig point, this being part of the Pendle Hill Project. We descended in a southerly direction to Ogden Clough reservoirs and then into Barley. After taking advantage of the facilities and a relaxed lunch by the brook we headed east towards Roughlee, crossing the road at White Hough to ascend through woodland to the village of Newchurch in Pendle. Picking up the Pendle Way we descended into the valley bottom, passing Bull Hole( Bull House)a residence recorded in the history of the Lancashire Witches. Keeping a westerly direction through Sabden Fold, Stainscomb and full circle back to Churn Clough reservoir. Distance approximately 12miles. A glorious day from start to finish. thanks Gill and Peter
