Join Johnny and OutdoorLads for a 13.96km (8.6 mile) walk from Ryal Fold into the Tockholes Plantation via the Roddlesworth Reservoirs and Hollinshead Hall ruin.
We’ll then pick up the Witton Weavers Way south and head up onto the West Pennine Moors, where we’ll cross Darwen Moor, before heading north to Darwen Hill and Jubilee Tower.
Once we’ve taken in the spectacular views across East Lancashire, we’ll then descend via Sunnyhurt and Earnsdale Reservoir, before heading over Green Hill and back to Ryal Fold.
