Pendle Walking Festival 2009

Pendle Walking Festival, September 2009

Sunday 6th

Pendle and Wheathead Height - 9.6 miles

A circular walk from Barley car park, with a stiff climb at a brisk pace to the windy summit of Pendle (1800ft) followed by a descent then climb to the summit of Wheathead Height (1300ft).

Monday 7th

Noggarth and the Pendle Witches - 6 miles

Circular walk from Barley car park, to visit some of the sites associated with the witches, with a lunch break at the isolated Noggarth café.

Tuesday 8th

Sir Jonas Moore sites/Noggarth ridge - 7.7 miles

Two unrelated walks.  The first visited the birthplace and homes of mathematician Sir Jonas Moore.  We then drove to Pendle Heritage Centre for lunch before a walk to see the views from Noggarth ridge, including another visit to the café.

Wednesday 9th

Wycoller - 4 miles

The ranger at Wycoller Country Park led a cross-country walk around one side of the valley.  As this was to be a fairly short walk, we were among several people who had hoped to join one of the afternoon walks in nearby Colne, but the leisurely pace of the Wycoller walk frustrated this idea.

Thursday 10th

White Moor and Weets, 7.7 miles

The most concentrated scenic walk of the week, to Weets, the second of Pendle's peaks, returning beside the Leeds and Liverpool Canal to Salterforth..

Friday 11th

Pinhaw, 9.1 miles

Circular walk from Earby, including Pinhaw Beacon. Met up with Cathy. We met her on one of the walks at the Malvern walking festival  at the end of May and have kept in touch.

Saturday 12th

Brontë Way, 9.4 miles

Coaches took us from Colne to a moorland car park near Haworth, from where we had a walk back beside reservoirs and across moors along part of the Brontë Way.
