24th November 2018: Entwistle And Wayoh !
Meet: Kay Street Car Park, Rawtenstall BEFORE 10.00am
Carshare to Crow Tree Lane, just across the bridge over Wayoh Res.(BL7 0LW), at around 10.40 am. THIS WALK will be followed by our annual Christmas Meal at 5 pm in Edgeworth.
We leave by taking the footpath southwards by Wayoh Reservoir, crossing the bridge and turning right on the footpath aiming for the railway viaduct. The path then ascends to join a lane, but we take a descending path on the right to a car park. We leave this by the main entrance/exit and turn right to cross the dam of Turton and Entwistle Reservoir and follow the bank of this reservoir passing Hall Shores Croft and the Metal Heron to cross a stile by the second bridge up the river feeding the reservoir. A second stile to the right gains access to open fields and a hill climb to stone gateposts from which we follow a track to the left. Following this to a narrow road we turn right to go through Edge Fold and New House Farm and The Strawbury Duck public house. After crossing the railway bridge and taking the bend right we take a path via a stile going down a field to the water’s edge of Wahoh Reservoir and right to be back to the bridge. 5 miles .
Come well shod with appropriate clothing for the likely weather forecast.
Bring your packed lunch and waterproof seat.
