Walk: Hareden Farm, Riggs Plantation, Whitmore Fell, Dinckley Green Farm, Long Knotts, Burholme Bridge, River Hodder, Dunsop Bridge, River Dunsop
Start Point: Trough Road Lay-by Grid Reference: SD 646 505
Distance: 8.8 miles Ascent: 1,015 feet
Time: 3.5 hours
Weather: Sunny and hot
Comments: Climbing 500 feet in half a mile near the start of the walk is quite taxing but the rest of the walk is more gentle. The varied terrain is rough in places but mainly dry.

Hareden Beck

We're all watching you!

The path narrows to a long rocky section . . .

before reaching the wooded section . . .

but mind your head, especially on the second, lower branch

From Long Knotts looking back to Whitemore . . .

and across Parlick

The entrance to New Laund . . .

where an unusual piece of equipment . . .

welcomes the visitor

Time for a tea party

River Hodder from Burholme Bridge

Langden Brook joins the River Hodder

Dunsop Bridge

Unusual to see a cow flat on the ground . . .

but it soon pops it's head up
