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
