Walk on Darwen Moor
One of the best walks I’ve had this year, brisk breeze but not cold and the moor wasn’t too boggy.
Distance: 4.31 miles
Overall av spd: 1.3mph
Walking spd: 1.9mph.
Not fast by most folk’s standards but plenty good enough for me, and the enjoyment quotient was close to max.

Follow the Yellow Brick Road – one of the paths the dogs and I walked on over Darwen Moor.

The only building still standing amidst the ruins of Hollinshead Hall in Roddlesworth and Tockholes Woods, the Well House. It is reputed to be a holy well, though there is scant evidence to confirm it.
