Pendleton Plod



Walk Leader- Wendy Hodson

Number on walk- 15

Distance- 12 miles

Weather- Fine with no rain!


St. George’s Day brought us some much needed fine weather and although not too warm, there was no rain! Seventeen walkers headed out from the pretty village of Pendleton, not with swords and shields but rucksacks and poles. Crossing several muddy fields we headed up to the Nick of Pendle where we crossed the Clitheroe Road and onto Apronfull Hill and Charters well. Having had a short coffee break we continued onto Ogden Clough and the Upper Ogden reservoir for lunch.

After refuelling, we began the ascent of Boar Clough, culminating in the Pendle trig point at 557m. The views were wonderful, with Longridge and Parlick being admired. We then descended Downham moor with the scenic village of Downham unfolding as we went. Our homeward trek took us through meadows filled with newly born lambs and passed Little Mearley and Mearley Hall.

Thank you to everyone who attended and made the day so very enjoyable.
