|Distance:||11.5 miles||Ascent:||2,350 feet|
|Weather:||Cold but dry with low mist in the distance|
|Comments:||A repeat of the walk done on the previous Monday, this time leading the Ramblers' group. Fortunately it was a dry day so that we were able to carry out the activity I had planned for Aitken Wood. Members of the group were given an up to date map of the Pendle Sculpture trail (the copy on the internet is out of date as the route has been changed). The aim was for them to find the scuptures and plaques and identify them on the map. Most of the group seemed to enjoy the activity.|
