Starting point of walk is the quiet hamlet of White Coppice, now a very tranquil spot, but in 1800 it was the site of a cotton mill. Its mill ponds still exist around the cricket ground. A gentle flat section starts the walk proper along the banks of 'The Goit' watercourse through Wheelton Plantation before beginning the steady climb up and over Wheelton Moor down to Tockholes Plantation. This flat section running through the woods is a good chance to catch your breath before beginning the climb over the moor to the top of Great Hill. At the top is a great viewpoint with views west to the coast, north to Lake District, east to Darwin Moor and south to Winter Hill. Choose a blue-sky day to make the most of the views. The final section is via Drinkwater Ruin with views over disused quarry sites back to start.
