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

Needs a bit of work !!!
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
