This walk could be combined with 3467 to make a half-day outing and can be combined with birdwatching in any of the numerous hides here, or even with a round of golf, a kick around with a football or flying a kite. Pennington Flash is an open space conveniently placed for many towns in the area. It is not too muddy even at the worst of times and for most of the year could be walked in trainers. Views of Winter Hill were good, even on the December day that we walked it.
