Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Alan Beeby.
A short circular walk in Littleborough that goes through a beautiful hidden valley. We will visit Hollingworth lake, Cleggswood as well as some nice in-between forest sections. If we have enough time we will make a brief stop at the Moorcock Inn before heading back along the Rochdale Canal.
