The Wrinkly Rambler

Pleasant walks with camera and three dogs

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
Time:3hr 12min
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.

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.
