Hill, Barley, Twiston Moor, Twiston, Torrid Bank
||Downham car park
||SD 784 440
||Overcast but warm
||A variation on a previous
walk, just the job for another hot day - except that it
didn't turn out to be particularly hot as the sun
remained hidden behind clouds all day! Most of the
climbing took place at the beginning of the walk, on the
way up to Pendle Hill summit (Big End). Having decided
that we would stop for a coffee in Barley for a change,
we were disappointed to find that the tea shop was
closed! After crossing over Twiston Moor we navigated
across fields and over streams before the final climb
over Downham Green and back to the car.

The level of the water in Upper Black Moss Reservoir is quite low .

This field barn never seems to have much happening in it
Initially looked like an erratic but turned out to be a large tree
