This walk will be led by Adrian and is aimed at experienced and fairly fit walkers. This is not a good walk for the beginner due to the distance and terrain.
We start at the Cat in the Well pub. The route takes in the high moors overlooking the Luddenden valley with superb views and also taking in the Churn Milk Joan stone. This is a stone steeped in legend and a basis for a Ted Hughes poem.
It is a longer than usual walk at eight and a half miles but the reward will be pie and peas (to be ordered beforehand) at the pub at the end. Stop for a snack/drink and another stop where budding poets can recite at the stone.
Have asked for an early start (would like to start prompt at noon) so that we can keep a steady pace without rushing. You will need all the usual: drink, snack, walking boots and waterproofs.
The going is generally good although parts of the moors are a bit boggy so that walking poles may be useful. Parking at the Cat in the Well car park is somewhat limited so please car share if at all possible.
