A 5 mile walk over The Nave, via Broadhead Clough and Whittlestone Head. On the Moors above Broadhead Clough are the remains of some 200 year old Coke Ovens that still have the insides charred black from years of use long ago. They were used to smelt Iron from locally mined coal.
Entwistle reservoir and valve tower
Footbridge over the River Irwell
The hill behind the trees is The Nave
The climb up The Nave
On to the barren and damp moors
The Coke Ovens
Still charred with black ash on the inside
Rugged West Pennine scenery
A couple of friendly locals
And some more further along the walk
Approaching Entwistle Reservoir again
Through the trees and down to the shoreline
On to the path that follows the Resrvoir all the way around.
Allong the shore line and back to the car
