Plan is for an exploration of the higher hills in the north-west of the Trough of Bowland. Parking as close to Tower Lodge (grid ref 604538) as you can on the road over from Dunsop Bridge. We will access the moors on the permissive path going north, then head NE toward Brennand Great Hill (or alternatively seek out the centre of the UK by going off-piste from Millers House), en route to Wolfhole Crag. We than head W / NW to Ward’s Stone (the highest peak in the Trough). Our descent is then broadly south to pick up the path down Tarnsyke Clough. A final bit of up and down on the Wyre Way gets us from Tarnbrook back to our starting point. Probably 20-21k in total (~13 miles) and possibly some rough and/or boggy going - I have not recce’d it so can’t tell you any more!
Meet 9.30am for a 9.45am prompt start – here’s hoping for some visibility. Please check the website scribble page in the event of really bad weather – lower level back-up route might be opted for at late notice.
Hope to see you then – let me know if anyone needs a lift.
