Sabden Fold, Lower Ogden Reservoir,
Hill, Scout Cairn, Clitheroe Road
||Lay-by on Clitheroe Road, Sabden
||SD 775 380
||Dull with some mist
||Today I tried a different
route along the north side of the Sabden Valley to bring
me out on Sadlers Height. From here I dropped down to
Lower Ogden Reservoir and walked along its north side
before heading towards Ogden Hill. From here I took an
unmarked path to Deep Clough Spring and on to the trig
point at Big End. Continuing along a route I have walked
many times I passed the shelter and the Scout Cairn
before tackling the boggiest part of the walk. From
Mearley Moor I made my way across to Badger Wells Hill
and followed some unmarked paths back to the car.

A misty start passing Churn Clough Reservoir
Clearer weather with views over the Black Moss Reservoirs
Descending past Fell Wood . . .
Lower Ogden Reservoir comes into view . . .
but Pendle Hill is still in mist
Lots of autumn colours around . . .
but a little sun would show them off better
The cairn on Big End appears out of the mist . . .
and there are no views today
Walking into the wind - reflected by the smoke from Clitheroe cement
Passing the shelter . . .
and then the Scout Cairn
A strange plant?
No, just a close up of a bracket fungus . . .
