Walk: Higher Aushaw, Wayoh Fold, Entwistle Fold, Edge Fold, Cote Farm. (Part of Witton Weavers Way)
Start Point: The Crown and Thistle, Grimehills Grid Ref: SD 721 197
Distance: 5 miles Ascent: 650 feet
Time: 2.5 hours    
Weather: Fine weather with sunny intervals and a cool breeze.
Comments: 30 walkers were not deterred by the heavy overnight rain and were rewarded by a dry walk (not underfoot!) and excellent views across the West Pennine Moors. Most of the paths and tracks were awash.
