Mellor Knoll and Burholme

Saturday 22nd September 2018

THE WALK

Along the valley in the direction of Newton before approaching the Hodder Bank Fell and then dropping down to the Ribble and then crossing Burholme Bridge. Climbing the main ascent on a minor road, field path and tracks and some rough pasture (600 feet in 2.85 miles) we cross some awkward terrain on short sections. The climb then gives way to some spectacular views into Bowland. Then we descend on steep grassy tracks and some rough pasture down to Haredon Farm before joining a minor road and some fields back into Dunsop Bridge.
