Walk: Anglezarke Reservoir, White Coppice, Wheelton Plantation, Higher Wheelton, Denham Hall
Start Point: Chorley Interchange Grid Ref: SD 585 175
Distance: 11.5 miles Ascent: 1,470 feet
Weather: Overcast and slightly milder than recently Time: 4.5 hours
Comments: Today's route was based on that done on 27th February but with a few changes. The path alongside Anglezarke Reservoir was rather muddy and next time I should look for the lower path. Taking an indistinct footpath through Wheelton Plantation I came across two barbecue areas which looked like they had been set up for organised activities. Another enjoyable walk when the weather turned out to be better than the forecast.

I wonder if the farmer is trying to prevent flooding?


Rather a large obstacle!
