Start Point: Foulridge Wharf Grid Reference: SD 888 426
Distance: 5.5 miles (shortened from a planned 7.5 mls) Ascent: 300 feet
Time: -    
Weather: Cold and fine to start, turning to continuous heavy rain by lunch time.
Comments: The walk is the Foulridge Beating the Bounds walk, available on a leaflet.
In spite of a poor forecast 18 people turned up to beat the bounds. It was obviously very wet underfoot and when the weather turned wet and we had sheltered under a canal bridge to picnic we decided to return to the wharf by a shorter route!
It is an interesting walk with views of Pendle and Ingleborough on a fine day!

Still fine as we cross the fields . . .

 

but continuous rain accompanied us across the bridge . . .

 

and drove us to shelter under a bridge as we ate lunch
