Musbury Tor and Hog Lowe Pike via the Rossendale Way.

If there is a finer walk than this one anywhere in Lancashire, I'm yet to find it. This one of my favourite walks and takes in a couple of ovely peaks, and a superb walk across the ridge of Musbury Heights. A bit muddy in places, but totally worth it.
