The walk goes by easy stages through pastures to the summit of a hill overlooking the Lancashire Plain. From here the views can be quite outstanding, with not just Bowland but also the Lake District and Wales to be seen. Blackpool Tower is almost guaranteed! The windmill is in ruins unfortunately, but with enough of the structure standing to show how big it was. The descent is equally easy with hedges and fences to guide you, good lengths of enclosed paths and a short stretch of canal with which to end.

Just completed this Excellent little walk 01/08/2013...The satnav postcode takes you to a pub for 'patrons only parking' so just drive past pub 30 yards and swing left to a free carpark right on the canal,that's where waymark 1 is anyway...At waymark 14 there's a basket full of free range eggs which you can buy one pound for half a dozen-- yum yum...Stunning views from the highest point..Thoroughly recommend this walk.Enjoy !

Just completed this excellent walk at the end of October 2012 and would concur that care needs to be taken through the waterlogged ground in several locations.
