Public Transport based walk with Alan Beeby.
After leaving the train station we do a stiff ascent through brook bottom and onto shaw farm. After a few muddy fields the walk tours some amazing valleys in the area before heading onto the Cown Edge Rocks and the incredible ridge line. We take a slight elongated way through more woods and riverways until we get to broadbottom.
