Expeditions, Navigation, Guided Walks and Trekking



A bright sun forcing its way through the bare trees gives this track a chance to dry out and loose some of the ankle deep mud it has made over the winter.


It was a bright sunny day, but the wind whipping in from the east made it extra chilly  on the tops. Although the plan was to walk across to Sunnyhurst, instead we sought the shelter of the woods dropping down from The Royal Arms at Tockholes into the woods.  The car park is on the site of the old Hollinshead Mill built in 1861, and quite a large undertaking from the old photos.

This track heads down the slope towards Halliwell Fold. I suppose there must be another Holy Well down here somewhere, perhaps near the waterfall or towards Hollingshead Hall.

This is a very popular dog walking area, joining three very dog friendly pubs through mixed woodland and along the pleasant River Roddlesworth.
