This area is littered with reservoirs that were built at the turn of the 19th century to supply water to the nearby cotton towns and mills. If you want to show someone how picturesque Lancashire can be (on a sunny day) take them to White Coppice which was once a busy industrial village with a population of some 200. Today many people will view White Coppice as an idyllic place to live. Beyond the cricket ground nestling at the foot of the moors is Dean Black Brook an area of quarrying and lead ore extraction. Drinkwater's is an abandoned farmstead with it's own well known as Joe's Cup! On the moor, but not visited on this route, is an ancient burial mound called Round Loaf. Lead Mines Clough has been mined from around 1690 up to 1930.

Absolutely brilliant! Fabulous views, great tracks, easy to follow. Just breathtaking. Perfect for dogs. My two children also loved it as we hike in excess of 8 miles every weekend dog walk (6 and 4)but probably not for children who are not experienced distance walkers. Shall definitely be returning again to tackle it trail running!
