Example text

Climb up and pass through a gap, then cross a fence by a stile: do not recross the stream by a bridge here (though this is clearly a used route, leading up to Dean House atop the far bank). Instead just keep upstream on a thin but adequately clear path, through the pleasantly wooded confines of Turnhole Clough, with waymarkers to assist. At the edge of the wood, cross a stile to the right and go up through bracken: the view now opens out impressively. When the fence on your left bends away, there appears a choice of routes, but these actually merge quite soon: either way, you drop to a stile nearer the stream and cross it.

I cannot, however, recommend it as a walk to enjoy: it calls for a very steep, short climb and shows you very little of the hill’s more interesting features. On the other hand, the Ogden Clough route from Barley, while offering an excellent, adventurous scramblers’ route - and avoiding the crowds - is a bit tough as an introduction to the hill. If you start from the Clitheroe side, the ascent from Worston via Mearley Clough is a fine climb, but again very steep. To do justice to the hill, it would be rewarding to explore all these routes, building up your own Pendle portrait.

Water”). The path is uncompromisingly direct - short but not sweet, you might say with no attempt at zig-zagging to ease the slope, though in truth it isn’t exceptionally steep. Up you go, no wavering! Initially the surface is concreted, to a little covered reservoir, then a waymarked path (poles) ensues. Spare a moment to look left for an impressive profile of the Wolf Stones on the nearby stretch of the Pennine Way. After passing through a gate, the way steepens a little, though remaining pretty firm underfoot in all but the very wet spells.
