Description
Waypoints (0)

The walk is an up and down one but none the worse for this. The initial climb from the fish ponds through the new plantings is steep and the views from the moor tops on clear days is extensive. You may not agree with wind farms but the one at Coal Clough seems to be as concealed as much as these things can be. There are 24 turbines. As part of a millennium project a lot of trees have been planted to re-establish what was once known as the Forest of Burnley' The hidden valley below Dean Scout was the site of an annual Goodfriday fair in years gone by. The area had a vibrant coal mining industry and in 1627 lead was discovered at Dean Scout. The river is the Calder - northwards the Lancashire version - southwards the Yorkshire version.

It was a great walk in terms of length and views, they really were phenomenal once you hit the peak. However, we found the trail quite hard to follow, and got stuck in quite a large boggy area! The trails are quite washed out/overgrown in places so is easy to loose bearings. It’s very open so can be quite chilly with winds from all directions! Overall though, we did thoroughly enjoy this challenging walk as a family.
