Brief Description

A pleasant stretch by the river Irwell is followed by a steady climb through the wooded Buckden Clough onto Holcombe Moor. The path continues across the moor to the well known landmark of Peel Tower before descending to Holcombe and the return to Ramsbottom. The lower path may be muddy in places, particularly after the recent rain, and there is a steady climb onto the moor, where there is a clear path. A short walk along the road at the end.
