East Lancashire
Distance
17.3ml.
Start Time

Route
Start Sabden Car Park, Gardeners Row, BB7 9EB. There are houses nearby so we should keep the noise down

A moonlit walk on the shortest night of the year. We will be at the top of Pendle Hill by 04.38 to watch sunrise on solstice morning. There are unconfirmed rumours that other groups gather on Pendle Hill for festivities on solstice morning. We aim to find out what goes on. The route will partly follow sections of the Pendle Way and will take us from Sabden through, White Hough, Higherford and Barley to Pendle Hill. We will arrive back at Sabden Car Park around 6am on Friday

General Notes
Please bring a headtorch, spare batteries, a packed ‘lunch’ and the usual equipment for a walk in open country. If you want to test your nighttime navigation skills a GPX file is available in advance
