Walk: Lower and Upper Ogden Reservoirs, Ogden Clough, Scout Cairn, Big End, Buttock, Fell Wood, Newchurch in Pendle, Thorny Bank, Heys Plantation, Bridge End
Start Point: Barley car park Grid Reference: SD 823 403 
Distance: 9 miles Ascent: 1,700 feet
Time: 5.5 hours
Weather: Sunny but cold with a heavy frost
Comments: The frozen ground made walking easier but it would be quite boggy in warmer weather. A cold day but little wind and pleasant walking in the sun..
