Cowpe Lowe in Rossendale

October 2016.

A 7 mile walk taking in 3 summits. Cowpe, Lowe, Whittle Hill and Top of Leach. Great views across Rossendale and following the Rossendale Way for much of the walk.


On the climb from Cowpe Village towards The Rosendale way


Onwards and upwards


Needs a bit of work !!!


Cowpe Reservoir


Old Quarry workings


Moody skies on the the walk to the 1st summit at Cowpe Lowe


Wind Turbines all over Scout Moor


Smmite No.1 Cowpe Lowe


Next Summit is Whittle Hill


The Rossendale Way takes us past Waughs Well, there is an interesting information board  elling all about this particular place


The summit cross can be seen on top of Whittle Hill


Bleak, damp and misty up here today


These beasts are massive when you get right up to them


Sumit No.2, Whittle Hill


And straight on to summit No.3 at Top of Leach


Nice little wind shelter on the summit of Top of Leach


Heading back towards the village of Cowpe and the sun makes an appeance and makes everything look so much nicer


Impossible to lose your way on tracks like this
