Walk: The route taken skirted Worston Moor and Downham Moor, returning via Downham, skirting Worsaw Hill and then following Worston Brook
Start Point: The Calf's Head, Worston Grid Reference: SD 767 429
Distance: 5 miles Ascent: 509 feet
Time: 5.75 hours    
Weather: Fine, dry and sunny but cold enough to freeze any melted snow
Comments: The Groupís first experience of walking in snow for some years and the icy stiles and roads, when used, caused some trepidation. However, the excellent views of Pendle, which could be seen throughout most of the walk, were enhanced by the covering of snow and made the walk more memorable.

and admired Pendle, more attractive in her new white clothing . . .
