Walk: Spring Wood, Whalley, Nab Wood, River Calder, Cock Bridge, Read Park, Read Old Bridge, Portfield, Clerk Hill
Start Point: Whalley Spring Wood Grid Reference: SD 740 360
Distance: 6.4 miles Ascent: 930 feet
Time: 2.7 hours
Weather: Overcast with some sunny spells
Comments: I've started from Spring Wood many times but have never walked through the wood itself. It is larger than expected and well worth a visit. This walk was from Country Walking and the instructions were clear though the start point information is completely wrong.

The walk through Spring Wood . . .

is more interesting than expected . . .

particularly with the sun breaking through the trees

Parish Church of St Mary and All Saints which dates from the 13th century
