|Walk:||Acreland, Till House, Higher Heights, Enclosed Track, Beacon Fell, Shivering Ginnel, Cob Manor, White Hall, Grindleton, Ribble Way|
|Start Point:||Roadside beside Abbey ruin||Grid Reference:||SD 776 462|
|Distance:||7 miles||Ascent:||1,500 feet|
|Weather:||Sunny and mild|
|Comments:||Repeating a route previously walked in snowy conditions (2020), we enjoyed sun and clear skies for much of the day. The enclosed path after Higher Heights was almost impassable and it would be much better to take the middle of the 3 options just after Till House, heading NW across fields to Smalden Lane.|
The mist still hangs around the Sawley Abbey ruins before we start the walk
