Overview

BOOKING REQUESTED

A leisurely/moderate walk with a flat start following the old conduit then a gradual ascent up to Blackstone Edge to pick up the Pennine Way.   This takes us to Green Withens sailing club for a scenic lunch (bring a packed lunch/drinks).  The return is over White Hill where there is a steeper but shorter ascent which takes us over moorland paths back to the cars.  Risk assessment: Some muddy and wet parts guaranteed but easily negotiated with care.
