Walk: Whitewell, Radholme Laund, Middle Lees, Lees House Farm, Micklehurst, Browsholme Farm, Browsholme Heights, Crimpton
Start Point: Whitewell Church Grid Ref: SD 569 468
Distance: 7.5 miles Ascent: 900 feet
Weather: A bright day with sun in the morning and becoming overcast in the afternoon
Accompanied by:

On my own

Comments: This was an enjoyable walk but would be much better in Summer when, hopefully, the ground would be much drier. The footpath from Browsholme Heights to the road to Crimpton would probably be impassable through the woods which looked very dense. Thankfully I had not taken this route, preferring to stay on the track by Browsholme Heights Wood.
