Great Hill (Again and again)

A final post for the day and some more photos from my favourite short walk in Lancashire, to the top of Great Hill on the edge of the West Pennine Moors.

I could never tire of the views across to Merseyside of north to Bowland and South Lakes beyond. Up and down takes only about an hour and a half, whether from the Lodge at Brinscall or White Coppice. Given either is only 20 minutes drive from Preston it makes a perfect longer morning or afternoon trip. Early mornings are our favourite, when even the morning fell runners haven't risen from their beds.

During the summer it's not a good route for off lead walking. Sheep abound although there are some nice off lead paths through the woods above the Goit. It's a good idea to take a flexi-lead with you.

These are some shots from our last couple of trips. As you can probably tell I'm enjoying the camera and editing software on my iPhone!
