Lancashire Life - - WALK -

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.
