Scroll down to see photos of the walk
Climbing from Slaidburn . . .
but the weather doesn't look too promising . . .
and it is very windy on Burn Fell
Descending through peat bog . . .
we make our way towards Whitendale . . .
as the sun touches the flanks of Middle Knoll
The group checks out the farm . . .
After crossing the bridge . . .
and passing the farm . . .
we found a sheltered spot on Whitendale Fell . . .
for our lunch stop
Reaching the Roman Road . . .
the signpost . . .
clearly shows our route
An interesting wayside marker . . .
part of the Lancashire Witches 400 programme . . .
which explored the heritage of the Lancashire Witches . . .
and the 400th anniversary of their trial and execution. (2012)
There have been original creative responses from a range of artists,
John pointed out an alternative path . . .
but Robb advised us to stay on the main track as he had previously explored the alternative route
