Walk: Dean Brook, Greengore, Spire Hill, Hare Hill, Leeming Quarry, Stock Bridge, Stoneyhurst College
Start Point: Hurst Green Village Hall car park Grid Reference: SD 684 382 
Distance: 7.7 miles Ascent: 900 feet
Time: 4 hours
Weather: Mild but mainly overcast
Comments: Marie & Sheila joined me for a repeat of Monday's walk with a slightly different descent. The route from Leeming Quarry to Stock Bridge was difficult to navigate at the beginning and then over very wet fields.

Greengore - again

A footpath is marked on the map at this point . . .

and a waymarker confrims this is the right spot . . .

but are we meant to climb over?

An alternative path misses out a very muddy section on the way to . . .

Spire Hill

Marie exits the trees after we navigate around a path blocked with lots of fallen trees

A clear path leads us through . . .

a section of dense growth . . .

and past an old quarry site
