|Walk:||The Pepperpot, Cove Lane, Lancashire Coastal Way, Lindeth Tower, Jack Scout, Jenny Brown's Point, Heald Brow, Scout Wood, The Row|
|Start Point:||Eaves Wood car park||Grid Reference:||SD 471 759|
|Distance:||6 miles||Ascent:||502 feet|
|Weather:||Windy and overcast with some sun|
|Comments:||A repeat of a previous walk, taken from the Cicerone Guide Walking in Lancashire. The Eaves Wood car park is owned by National Trust but there is no charge. The early section along the sand was 'messy' to walk on and the water could hardly be seen on the horizon. Probably better to stick to the higher route next time.|

A restored tower, once a limekiln, marks the start of the sea-washed turf - very pleasant to walk on
