Walk: Circular walk passing Hecklin Farm, Twiston Mill and Downham Mill
Start Point: Downham car park Grid Reference: SD 785 442
Distance: 5.7 miles Ascent: 700 feet
Time: 3 hours    
Weather: Sunny & blue sky
Comments: 28 in the group. Quite a lot of climbing. Very pretty walk along Twiston Beck and Ings Beck. Lovely views of the hills as such a clear day. Excellent lunch at the Calf's Head in Worston.

Leaving to the south of Downham, the party followed Downham Beck for a short distance before climbing gradually to Ravenís Holme and Brownlow over reasonably dry and firm field paths. Having reached Brownlow the group stopped for sustenance before descending in the general direction of Twiston and then Downham.
Thank you leader, backmarker and recce party!
