Walk: Anderton, Horrobin Lane, The Street, Anglezarke Reservoir, Abyssinia, Limbrick, Hall o' th' Hill
Start Point: Bay Horse Pub, Heath Charnock Grid Reference: SD 611 145
Distance: 5.9 miles Ascent: 570 feet
Time: 2.75 hours    
Weather: Dry and sunny
Comments: The last week had seen major fires on the Anglezarke Moors. As the programmed walk was in that direction, it was changed to a walk keeping west of the Anglezarke and Rivington Reservoirs. Plenty of bluebells, May blossom and other spring flowers.
