Daytripping: The West Pennine Moors. . .

Another sunny fall weekend and our anniversary to boot, so off we were for another day-long hike. This time we headed to the West Pennine Moors, not far from Bolton.  We started our walk along the Anglezarke Reservoir.

And through some peaceful forest paths.

 Working our way ever upwards where the majority of the hike was on gorgeous open moorland - my favourite type of walking terrain.  It was a bit boggy in spots, but much of the path was on paving stones or gravel so it wasn't too hard going.

In the distance is Pendle Hill infamous for its witch trials in the 17th century

Along the way there were plenty of sheep to accompany us.

And several hours and miles later we completed our circular route and were overlooking the reservoir again.

Another beautiful walk within an hour's drive of Liverpool.
