I haven't been able to price tickets as yet but 1st train leaves at 10:00. Take your Ramblers membership cards as i have been told they will give a small discount on trip...usually £12.

It's a steep walk up to the tower followed by a more gentle climb to the trig point at Bull Hill. This might change as it is sometimes out off bounds. Then dropping back to Irwell Vale and back along river to the start.
