Event description

Description

A scenic walk taking in Foulridge Lower and Slipper Hill reservoirs, the walk passes Malkin Tower and Stansfield Tower, with a fine view of Pendle Hill.

There is a wide variety of countryside to be seen, including open fields, wooded glades, lakeside paths, and shaded valleys. The site of Malkin Tower is on the route, and Stansfield Tower, which is more often called Blacko Tower, is close to the route. The summit of the route above Admergill Pasture offers a fine view of Pendle Hill, and offers a good place to stop for a few minutes break . We will then return, visiting the picturesque Slipper Hill Reservoir and Foulridge Lower Reservoir, returning to the Four Elephants car park. Food and toilet facilities are available in Foulridge. It should be born in mind that no toilet facilities are available on route.

Approximate length of walk: 7 miles

Walk grading: Hard - walks with some difficult terrain and hilly sections (1 – 9 miles)

Pace of walk: we hope to set a faster pace with only occasional breaks.

Approximate amount of ascent: 400 metres.
