This short walk takes you up a gritstone hill and crosses limestone pastures on the return. The ascent is steep in only a few places, while the way down is very gradual. The view from the trigpoint encompasses Pendle to the west, but its outstanding view is of the limestone country to the north. All three of Yorkshire's Three Peaks can be seen and even Malham Cove is visible if you know where to look. I thought it quite an outstanding short walk by any standards, with fairly easy going underfoot for the most part.

A steady ascent up Weets Hill, however it was a bit dismaying to see one or two Pendle Way Witch signs removed between WP4 - 6. Souvenir hunters or vandals I'm not quite sure. Probably both. The view from the top of Weets is superb - a genuine 360 degree vista. It's quite hard to tear yourself away to continue the walk. That said, the descent is very pleasant, all the way down to WP9 where you pick up Brogden Lane. Flass House now has an impressive, new name plate! When you reach Jack House, the signing takes you directly forward past Jack House to the corner stile. On approaching Hollins Farm you pass some renovated properties and then do a quick right and left continuing on the farm access road. The rest of the walk is straightforward save the pull up Gillians Lane back to the start. Not a long walk but one where you feel you have achieved something. Roll on the next Jim Grindle Walk!
