Sunday, 23rd August 2009




Walk: Holmehead Bridge, Hammerton Hall, Rain Gill, Brook House Green, Western perimeter of Gisburn Forrest, New House, Copped Hill Clough, Eak Hill, Sagar Hill, Shay House, Townhead.
Start Point: Slaidburn car park Grid Reference: SD 714 524
Distance: 11 miles Ascent: 1,300 feet
Time: 6 hours    
Weather: Overcast in the morning with showers in the afternoon.
Comments: Nineteen people took part, in inclement weather, on a circular anti-clockwise walk around Stocks Reservoir. The group partook lunch just prior to afternoon rain attempting to replenish the reservoir. The footpath around Brook House Green (Farm) appears to have been re-routed to the North of the farm instead of through the farm yard to the South. By following a well defined track you can reach Lower Barn. Thanks to the Leader and Back Marker.
