Walk: Mellor Knoll Hause, Whitemore, Dinkling Green, New Laund, Burholme Bridge, Dunsop Bridge
Start Point: Trough Road lay-by Grid Reference: SD 647 505
Distance: 9 miles Ascent: 979 feet
Time: 4 hours
Weather: Mainly sunny
Comments: Difficult to navigate due to missing stiles and inaccessible gates. I had to backtrack and find alternative routes to complete the walk. Rocky and wet terrain at times but a very pleasant end to the walk alongside the River Hodder.

Langden Beck from the start point with Hodder Bank Fell in the distance

An unusual object on the footpath but rather than for walkers . . .

I think it belongs to the Inch Perfect Trials centre which can be seen from here

A bridge across a gully - or fallen trees??

Bluebells galore but the best were out of camera range :(

The dead, the old and the new - fallen trees are being replaced by natural woodland

New Laund Farm . . .

has an interesting entrance
