|Start Point:||Clitheroe Road, Sabden||Grid Reference:||SD 775 380|
|Distance:||10.5 miles||Ascent:||2,140 feet|
|Weather:||Sunny with a cold wind, especially in exposed sections|
|Comments:||With a good forecast for this area three of us set out for Pendle Hill, avoiding the more popular paths where possible. The trig point looked smart in its new coat of paint but it was as popular as expected so we quickly took our leave and descended into Barley to enjoy an Afternnon Tea at the cafe. Continuing on our way we climbed up beside the two reservoirs to follow Ogden Clough back to the main path. A slight detour took us down towards Churn Clough Reservoir on our way back to the cars.|
