Event description
A chance to reconnect with the wild amid some stunning scenery in one of England’s last wilderness areas.

About this event

Cross of Greet Bridge - River Hodder - Bowland Knotts - Raven's Castle - Cross of Greet Bridge

GRADE: MEDIUM

Distance: 12.2km

Max elevation: 483m

Total ascent: 450m

This rugged walk links the two high level passes across the Forest of Bowland, traversing some wild upland territory where merlin and peregrine scythe across the moorland and lonely gritstone outcrops punctuate the primal landscape.While it’s a relatively short walks, this is tough terrain and it will present a stern test, but the rewards are a sense of splendid isolation beyond the reach of mobile phone coverage and a chance to reconnect with the wild amid some stunning scenery in one of England’s last wilderness areas.

Please meet us from 10:15 at Cross of Greet Bridge car park. Subject to numbers and due to limited parking spaces we might look to organise an alternative meeting point at Slaidburn Car Park (BB7 3AE) and facilitate car-sharing for the 10 mins transfer to our walk start. We'll look to return to Slaidburn and (subject to opening times) head to the Hark to Bounty Inn for food and refreshments post-walk.

Public transport is challenging though we might be able to co-ordinate lifts or a shared taxi transfer from Clitheroe station which is 8.7 miles away (approx 15-20mins).

This walk will be led by Mark Sutcliffe, Editorial Director, Salar Media

Walkers will need sturdy walking boots or shoes, layered clothing and waterproofs just in case though we'll update on the weather forecast closer to the walk. You should also bring drinking water. More information will be sent out in the week before the walk.

Hope you can join us.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, you're fine as you are. We keep track of the attendees and check you off on arrival. However, if you have a confirmation email saved onto your phone, this may be useful on the rare occasion that there are any issues.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

If you can no longer make it, please be sure to contact us with at least 24 hours notice. We try to be as accommodating as possible and understand that work commitments may pop up. Therefore, if you do need to transfer your ticket to a colleague, please contact us with their full details so we can organise the transfer in good time including the signing of the relevant legal disclaimers.
