|Start Point:||Bolton-by-Bowland car park||Grid Reference:||SD 785 494|
|Distance:||7.5 miles||Ascent:||900 feet|
|Weather:||A dull start with some sun later on|
|Comments:||The walk was in two parts centred on Bolton By Bowland. A dull start in the morning took us to Copy Nook and the little village of Holden. Shortly after this we stopped in the fields above the village to observe the 2 minute silence. It was then on to Higher Heights for coffee, before retuning via the old Rodhill Lane, Hague and back to the green in Bolton by Bowland for lunch. The sun came out, and we set off for the second half which went through Bolton Park to Scott Laithe and Fooden before returning to Bolton By Bowland.|
