A pretty walk out of Wycoller along the valley and then we head to the summit of Boulsworth Hill - Lad Law at 517m using the Lancashire Way.

This takes us north past the Walshaw Dean Reservoirs & up & over Withins Heights to the ruins of Bronte fame. The Bronte Waterfalls and Bridge follow and then it's the Bronte Way most of the way back followed by a short climb at the end back to the Atom and the cars
