Public Transport based walk with Arthur Embleton.
After leaving Littleborough, we'll climb up Blackstone Edge and join the Pennine Way north. Then we'll drop into Warland and have lunch next ot the Rochdale Canal. After lunch we'll climb up Shore Moor, Crook Hill and Rough Hill before dropping back down into Littleborough for a drink or two.
We'll be moving at a moderate pace. Bring a packed lunch and some snacks. I'm aiming for the walk to finish by 16:30, which would allow you to catch a train arriving into Manchester for 17:04.
