Did the Pendle Hill circular, with Lyndsey, from Barley (Mid morning closed car park and cars everywhere, parked half a mile out of the village) Lovely walk via Ogden reservoirs and Ogden Clough despite the threat of rain. The descent down the steps back to Barley was unpleasant. The Pendle Inn serves a very good pint of ale.Sixtyplus20/10/2019

Parked the car at Barley car park . Route via Black Moss Reservoirs. Up Pendle Hill and down to Ogden reservoirs. Extended walk by following Pendle Witch Walk up Fell Wood , Newchurch and Middlewood.

3rd hill of 5 today with Lesley on a circular walk from Sabden via Clitheroe then Worston to the Ridge, then Worsaw Hill via Warren Hill dropping down to Hookcliffe then up via Clough scrambling in and out of the watercourse emerging on rough ground to climb over a stone wall before reaching the zig zag track dropping down South from the forestry plantation North of Downham Moor. The track breaches the summit plateaux, from there I took a bearing for us to reach the concessionary footpath running to the wall and stile and from there the Pendle Way was taken to reach the Trig pillar. I thought the land about 2m to the west or the Trig pillar was marginally higher. We continued South on a track heading for Upper Ogden reservoir continuing on to Rigg of England...Dazingdale15/10/2017

From car park on Clitheroe Rd via Ogden Clough. Top in cloud.. which annoyingly cleared whilst descending!steve_a24/05/2017
KJ Bare hill with fantastic views. Easy but steep ascents from the nearest road East where there is plenty of roadside parking. Very popular in the morning sunshine today. J with the zeal and fitness of youth took the direct path up while I took the repaired zigzag and he only beat me by 6 minutes.crazy07/05/2017
From a layby on West Lane 1mile from Downham up the path at the side of Burnt Clough to the obvious right slanting path going up and arriving on the summit plateau. A pleasant walk along the edge until meeting the hordes at the trig(including a lady in high heels). Descent by the trade route and back by Grass Coppy(wet in places) road and paths.reaper09/04/2017
