||Intermittent sun and cloud
||At last, a good weather
forecast for the day so time to plan a decent walk!
Starting from the surfaced car park just above Sabden, I
followed an unmarked path from the cattle grid higher up
the road. The path is quite clear on the ground and
makes a good alternative to the stony track from Nick of
Pendle. I then made my way to the Scout Cairn via
Mearley Moor - another alternative to the main route.
Descending over Worston Moor I turned north west to
reach Hookcliffe Plantation then climbed back up onto
Pendle Hill and on to the summit. After descending to
Barley I walked up to Lower Ogden Reservoir then turned
to walk south of Fell Wood. From here it was a gradual
climb over Spence Moor before descending past Deerstones
and returning through Sabden.
