||Salterforth Bridge, Letcliff
Country Park, Folly Lane, Weets Hill, Star Hall, Duck Pond, Lister Well
Road, Salterforth Bridge
||SD 887 453
||Mild but misty at higher levels
||The small parking area is easy to miss - on
the right just before the bridge. After a short walk along the towpath I
headed along paths through fields with quite long, lush grass - which
was also rather wet! At Letcliff Hill there was another very suitable
parking spot as this area is aprt of a country park. After navigating
through a few fields I headed along a clear track to the trig point on
Weets Hill. Unfortunately by this time the mist had closed in and there
were no views to be had. A short stretch on the Pendle Way took me to
the turning for Duck Pond - where there was no sign of a pond but some
very large heads. From here the route descended gradually along tracks
and field paths to the car park.

The simple bridge takes you across the beck
On Weets Hill a seat is provided to enjoy the view - nothing to see today!
