Walk: Old Clitheroe Road, main track onto Longridge Fell with a couple of detours before taking side track towards Chisley Green then along Old Clitheroe back to starting point
Start Point: Parking area on Old Clitheroe Road Grid Reference: SD 665 396
Distance: 4.2 miles Ascent: 591 feet
Time: 2 hours
Weather: Sunny and mild
Comments: A very pleasant start but ongoing felling on the top track had left it very churned up and muddy. A decision to follow a track down to the road took me and Luna along very boggy stretches then across marshy fields. A brisk walk along Old Clitheroe Road quickly took us back to the car!

The top track is completely churned up . . .

due to the forestry work, felling trees

A side track looks more inviting . . .

as Luna shows the way

A second side track has almost disappeared by the time I reach the stile . . .

which is also disappearing on the opposite side!!
