A little different from the usual Leisurely Walks!  The leader and his group of twelve used paths and tracks on the moors above Burnley to visit the Singing Ringing Tree at Crown Point and then Clowbridge Reservoir before returning to The New Waggoners for an excellent lunch.  The leader pointed out things of interest on the way.
