Walk: Downham, Worsaw End, Worston Moor, Scout Cairn, Pendle Hill, Barley, Twiston Moor, Twiston, Downham Mill
Start Point: Downham car park Grid Ref: SD 784 440
Distance: 11 miles Ascent: 1,830 feet
Weather: Wet with a strong wind and mist on Pendle Hill
Accompanied by:

2 members of the group

Comments: This was almost the same route as that done on Tuesday, 8th February. I led the walk for the group but due to a variety of circumstances and a poor weather forecast only two of the group joined me on the walk. As there was a cafe almost on the route we decided to make use of it and enjoyed scones and drinks before continuing on our way.
