Walk: Downham, Worsaw End, Scout Cairn, Pendle Hill, Lane Head, Pendle Road
Start Point: Downham car park Grid Reference: SD 784 440
Distance: 5.7 miles Ascent: 1,416 feet
Time: 2.5 hours
Weather: Sunny spells initially then overcast and a strong wind
Comments: With a dry middle of the day forecast Lisa, Paul and Luna joined me for the first walk of the year onto Pendle Hill

The sun highlights the start of our walk . . .

and we are pleased to have completed the muddy track

Early in the climb the views begin to open up . . .

but there's still lots more ascent to complete

A narrow footpath takes us across the side of Pendle Hill rather than to the summit . . .

and Luna joins Paul in the lead
