Walk: Tockholes Plantation, Jubilee Tower, Roddlesworth Reservoirs, Tockholes Plantations
Start Point: Car park off A675 Belmont Road Grid Ref: SD 665 191
Distance: 8 miles Ascent: 1,4209 feet
Weather: Dry and overcast with a cold wind Time: 3.75 hours
Comments: Another dry day forecast and not quite as cold as the previous few days. Darwen Moor provided the ideal place for a short(ish) walk on good tracks. I did this walk in the opposite direction to that usually taken and descended to the plantations via a different route. A pleasant day.
