This walk can be split into two sections as follows:
Section 1) It starts in the town of Ramsbottom, which has easy access for both driving and public transport. It starts with two steep climbs up to the heights above Ramsbottom. There are excellent views towards Bury, Manchester and across towards Winter Hill (TV transmitter station). Other landmarks to look out for include Peel Tower, Chill Factor (indoor ski slope) and the Beetham Tower (Manchester), the tallest residential building in Europe. It crosses the moor (well-defined track) and then along rural roads to 'Owd Betts' for a refreshment break. There is usually a burger van parked on the rough ground just past the pub.
Section 2) After leaving the pub area the walk continues back along the road for a short distance, then drops down and along the banks of a stream past the ruins of two old mills. After passing two ponds it follows a green lane towards the outskirts of Nangreaves Village. The last stretch continues along a rural road, past a ruined tower and then passes above a babbling brook along a tree-lined footpath before dropping down to cross the motorway (M66) and back to the start via a woodland track.
