6 people set out on a well worn route from Edgworth Cricket Club, on a very wet day to complete a twenty mile walk developed by Derek Magnall who nicknamed the walk Spanner's round after his dog. This is an East Lancashire LDWA Anytime, Anywhere Challenge.

We walked along the Wayoh to the bottom of Entwistle, followed by Edgworth Moor, Broadhead, Calf Hey and Ogden Reservoir, Holcombe Moor and on to Peel Tower where we had lunch. We then went down to Redisher Wood and Hawkshaw and up to Affetside and along Jumbles Reservoir back to Edgworth. We went past five reservoirs and one tower. Great little walk over lovely countryside. The rain hammered it down for most of the afternoon. The only time the guys cracked a smile was when Kim advised that the Cricket Club accepted non members and offered cask ales: she'd obviously learnt the drill!
Thanks for nailing the walk everyone and I'll make sure you get a badge of honour.
