Crown Point - Tuesday 8th. October 2013


The walk started from the small car park at Crown Point, situated on the moors above Burnley, near the 'Singing, Ringing Tree'. After the bright sunny weather of late, the day began rather dark and gloomy with a cool breeze, making those who had chosen to wear shorts wonder if they'd made the right decision.

Our walk headed more or less in a westerly direction across moorland to join the Rossendale Way above Clowbridge Reservoir. Keeping on the Rossendale Way we continued across the moors for a while, then dropped down to Love Clough. From there we took a series of paths as we climbed up to the trig. point on Great Hameldon.

It was now time to head back, as from here we made our way eastwards, past the Radar Weather Station, along the Burnley Way to the Crown Point Road. By now the weather had improved considerably and as we returned to our cars, it seemed a pity to have to end the walk.


Thanks Glenn for an very enjoyable 10 mile walk over the moors and much appreciated by all who took part.
