16.5 miles - 7 hours walking – 3,086ft of ascent. We do climb to the top of Lad Law at 517m on this day and there are other steep sections.
Some of the prettiest parts of east Lancashire with places such as Wycoller, the Atom, Boulsworth Hill and Thursden, followed by Hurstwood. The final part of the day takes in the descent into the Cliviger Gorge.
Meet at 9am at the Ratten Clough lay bye (GR 889 270) on the A646 just after Holme Chapel and the single lane bridge over the railway. I may hire a minibus to take us to the start at Laneshaw Bridge depending upon numbers. Alternatively, we may do a “car shuffle”. Short walk back to cars at the end of the day.
