Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Alan Beeby.
This walk starts alongside the Rochdale Canal. Once we leave the canal we start our ascent up to Warland and Light Hazzles reservoirs, before heading along to Blackstone Edge reservoir and passing the White House pub. From here we start our descent to Littleborough calling off at the Moorcock Inn for refreshments. On leaving the pub we will proceed back towards Littleborough via a valley and a few pastures.
I will also be running Northern Quarter Pub Crawl on that evening. Details are available on the socials page.
