Event Type
Group Walk
Northern England
Local Group
West Lancashire
Start Time
Meet at the Calf Hey Reservoir car park - Grid ref SD 754 228. This is not the car park with the cafe and visitor centre but can be found a little further on along the Grane Road towards Haslingden by taking a sharp right off the main road

This is a version of the Spanner's Round walk. We begin at Haslingden Grane and its reservoirs and then follow the Rossendale Way, via Musbury Heights, to Holcombe Moor. If time permits we will visit Holcombe Tower, the Pilgrim's Cross and Bull Hill before sampling the new flagstones across Black Moss. We descend to the Wayoh and Entwistle Reservoirs before heading back up the Broadhead valley visiting Hog Lowe Pike. There is a total ascent of just over 2,700ft and to complete the walk in day light, the pace will be moderate to brisk
