Izzy the Dog and I started this walk from Newchurch. It's a fine, sunny Saturday!

The OC route is generally quiet and it didn't disappoint today, we're yet to greet anyone.

The Summit

Not much changes from one Pendle walk to the next, so the different walkers and the sky colour changes are always welcome.

Looking East

The view to the east shows the two reservoirs of Black Moss (drinking water) and Foulridge Lower Reservoir (canal feeder).

And down the steps, across the fields, heading for Barley.

One of my favourite views to Pendle Hill. If you look hard enough, you will see Lower Ogden Reservoir ... and you might see a face looking north along the steep fellside.

Route: Newchurch, Fell Wood, Ogden Reservoirs, Ogden Clough, Summit, Steps, fields to Barley, Heys Lane and up and over to Newchurch.
