This walk is in the area between Clow Bridge and Clough Bottom Reservoirs. There are a number of named trails in the area of the Dunnockshaw Community Woodland. This walk follows parts of several of these trails and also part of the Rossendale Way. It also uses several public bridleways. It passes an old monument and the remains of a hamlet. This is an area popular with dog-walkers but I have not seen many bikes or motor-bikes in the area. As this walk takes part on water-board land there are a number of small streams that are crossed. Note the small bridges you cross along the paths. Also you pass the remains of two quarries. The broken-down walls are a reminder of the area's past. There is an option to visit the Singing Ringing Tree at the end or during the walk depending on your start point. The trails followed on the walk are 'Limey Valley Way', 'Quarry Walk', 'Windy Bank' and 'Greenhill Circuit'. They are mostly embedded stone trails so are easy to follow. Between Waymarks 04 and 05 and also between Waymarks 06 and W07 the paths twist and turn, so 'short cuts' have been created across bends. The walk also follows part of the Rossendale Way. Some of the footpaths shown on the map do not exist and some of the paths in the walk are not on the map but are clear on the ground, especially around the area near Clow Bridge Reservoir.
