Brief Description

The walk begins at the Memorial Gardens to the North of Great Harwood and continues down into the valley of the Dean Brook. Ahead to the west is Dean Clough Reservoir. Height is then maintained above the reservoir with wide views in all directions. The route continues across the farmland and descends gradually to pick up the Harwood Loop Line, a disused railway line. This narrow track widens as it takes us back to the start. The route may involve a very brief road walk plus a quiet lane, to avoid a short but particularly problematic section if the weather has been poor. Field tracks, stiles, farm and kissing gates.
