Ah! The joys of walking on your own doorstep, more or less - just a few minutes drive from home to the start point. A fine, sunny and warm day and plenty of energy and enthusiasm for a fine Pendle walk.


To Barley

It's a pleasant short walk from Roughlee to Barley along the river and past some fine cottages.

Friends of mine drove for two hours today to get to Windermere and then it took another two hours to find somewhere to park. There is a fantastic choice of walks and views in East Lancashire and parking is not normally a problem.
