The walk is based on the extensive parkland around Towneley Hall with full facilities on site. It makes a gradual climb to the south of the hall, crossing a golf course to reach some newly built tracks leading to Burnley's Panopticon, The Singing, Ringing Tree. From here a steeper descent leads to a crossing of a railway and then to the edge of the park, where well-made tracks lead back to the start.

Good views. There is a problem at WM04. The path has been closed since 3/1/14 for approx. six months. The alternative route I used (27/3/14) was to continue up the road from WM03 towards the traffic lights. Cross the road at the lights and turn right. Follow the road up past the start of the construction site. Take the gate on the right which will lead you back to the track between WM05 and WM06. Turn left and follow the track to WM06.

A number of stiles where you would have to lift a medium/large dog over. Quite a bit of road walking.
