Entwistle Res and The Coke Ovens on The Nave.

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
