|Distance:||8 miles||Ascent:||1,250 feet|
|Weather:||Drizzle to start, but improved during the morning and sunny in the afternoon..|
|Comments:||It was waterproofs on as our group of 19 set off through Barley and took to the moors past Lower Black Moss Reservoir. As we made our way to Coolham on the edge of Twiston Moor it was improving although still rather misty for the distant views. By the time we reached the highest point on Rimington Moor near Wheathead Height it was very pleasant and sunny and warm, with good views. It remained fine as we returned via Higher and Lower Wheathead, Hollin Top, Thorney Holme and Heys Lane to Barley.|
