About the Event
Our route will take the classic circular of Pendle Hill, starting from the village of Barley. Approx 5 miles in total, however there is a shorter option, should anyone prefer. The route is a gentle start which leads into a grassy stroll before starting our steeper ascent, with ever expanding views afforded as more height gained. From the summit even Blackpool tower and the Lakeland fells can all be seen on a clear day. The walk then proceeds down through through grassy moorland and walkin past the spectacular Ogden reservoirs back towards Barley.
In order to keep the momentum of the walk and to hopefully reach the summit together, we will walk in 2 or 3 groups depending on ability. Please state at time of registration which group you would prefer.
Group A - Would like to take a little more time
Group B - Would like to walk at a faster speed
9:00 - Meet at Priory Park to drive in convoy and lift share OR you can make your own way there.
9:45 - Group A Start Walk
10:00 - Group B Start Walk
12:00 - Approx finish Walk
13:00- Arrive back in Penwortham
What to bring
- Team RAW vest and long sleeve top if you have one
- Decent walking shoes or trainers, with a grippy sole
- Snacks + Pack Lunch ( weather permitting, we will enjoy our pack lunch at the summit)
