SUNDAY 3RD APRIL 2016 - CLOUGHA
In sunny conditions, the Fellwalkers, led by Clive Horsford, left Birk Bank Car Park and followed Rigg Lane to climb via Low Pleasant to Rooten Brook Farm. A steady climb from there alongside Rowton Brook led to the rather chilly summit of Clougha. The route continued eastwards over Plover Moss to a disused quarry which now houses three remarkable Goldsworthy sculptures which were greatly admired. After a short refreshment break there, the descent along the shooters' track was made to join the somewhat soggy path back to the start.
