|Walk:||Mearley Moor, Scout Cairn, Big End, Ogden Clough, Deerstones, Churn Clough Reservoir|
|Start Point:||Sabden, Clitheroe Road lay-by||Grid Reference:||SD 775 380|
|Distance:||8.8 miles||Ascent:||1,170 feet|
|Weather:||Sunny but a very strong wind|
|Comments:||The strong headwind for the first half of the walk, which is mainly uphill, made walking more difficult. Trying yet another descent into Ogden Clough now gives me three to choose from.|
Mearley Moor . . .
which has a dedication plaque . . .
and a view to the Nick Of Pendle
From the Scout Cairn the shelter can just be seen
Big End is much quieter today
Time to leave Ogden Clough . . .
but the path is steeper than it looks!
Churn Clough Reservoir
In the woodland the trees used to in straight lines . . .
but are now being replaced . . .
by a variety of deciduous trees
A peacock butterfly . . .
enjoys a spot in a sunny dell
