Walk: Knowley, White Coppice, Angkezarke Reservoir and Healey Nab
Start Point: Lock and Quay, Botany Bay Grid Reference: SD 593 188
Distance: 5.5 miles Ascent: 550 feet
Time: 3 hours
Weather: Sunny becoming overcast
Comments: This pleasant circular walk was over field paths, tracks and lanes through a water catchment area close to Chorley.  Thirty-eight persons took part and were able to observe the ritual of spring as new leaves; blossom and spring blooms sprang forth along the route together with bird song.  This is a nice walk at any time of the year.
