Walk: Boars Den Farm, High Moor, Hunters Hill, Parbold and Fairy Glen
Start Point: Lay-by Sparrow Hill near Parbold Hill Grid Reference: SD 516 109
Distance: 7.75 miles Ascent: 780 feet
Time: 4.25 hours    
Weather: Light rain all day with temperatures around 3 degrees centigrade
Comments: A group of ten people took part in the walk, first ascending to High Moor and then circumnavigated Higher Barn before returning to Higher Moor Lane. After walking around Hunters Hill and quarry the group then descended to Parbold to join the Leeds to Liverpool Canal. Later they left the canal to join Wood Lane and then struggling through three fields of mud, the best that nature could provide, they commenced a gentle climb through Fairy Glen to reach the start point. Although a little tired, wet and muddy the group enjoyed the walk which afforded murky views of the Pennines and salad growing area of West Lancashire. Thank you leader.
