||Abbey Village towards Withnell, Gortons, nr.
Withnell House Farm, Snape Heights, Pike Lowe, Brinscall School,
Brinscall Hall, along the Goit to Brinscall village then along the
disused railway to Withnell and above the railway back to Abbey.
||Hare and Hounds Pub, Abbey Village
||SD 644 244
||Very cold and frosty but
bright and sunny.
||An ideal day for a winter walk. The walk
also well suited for the time of year. There were a few stiles in
the early part of the walk. Some field walking but mostly good
tracks, firm underfoot. Good views over towards Darwen Tower and
pleasant woodland walking along The Goit.
