Walk: Radcliffe Hall, Black Hall, Cold Coats, Nob Barn, Hough Clough, Hall Trees Farm.
Start Point: The Dog & Partridge Grid Reference: SD 618 413
Distance: 5.3 miles Ascent: 525 feet
Time: 3.25    
Weather: Very warm and humid with low cloud providing light rain. Visibility poor.
Comments: A band of rain forecast for Cumbria went astray and lingered over the Chipping area thus obscuring scenic views of Longridge Fell and Parlick Fell. Undaunted, Peter and his twenty six followers tramped through wet hay fields, climbed slippery stiles, and paddled through a little bit of mud just to work up an appetite for the lovely food at The Dog and Partridge. Another good walk!
