Stand facing the triangulation pillar with a wire fence behind it then turn left and after a few metres there is a stile on the right in the fence. Cross the stile and turn right and with the fence on the right follow the path as it goes behind the pillar then keep on the path following the fence that eventually becomes a wall. The path becomes a track that more or less follows the wall and goes downhill to reach a gate stile in a wall going straight on. Cross the stile and keep on with the wall on the right there is not much of a path so follow the wall as it turns left and drops down towards the A671 main road. The path ends at a gate. Go through the gate onto the road and turn right and take the pavement along the road until a road on the left signposted Rawtenstall B6238. This is a lovely old building full of character with a very picturesque view of the crags of Cliviger and the prominent Dean Scout. It was mid-afternoon on a warm sunny Tuesday when we did the walk and most of the tables outside were full of diners, testimony to the good food on offer. 01282 459091.
