We took a route via Ogden reservoirs and Ogden Clough. It's also part of the long distance Pendle Way trail. We thought it might have less people on it and it was quieter than the usual route up the Big End. Plus it went past a couple of reservoirs which I always enjoy looking at. I love the quirky stone towers you often find and the elaborate overflow systems that you find there. Really interesting

|No idea what they are for but it looks fab!|
|Ogden Clough - a secret valley|
Ogden Clough is a beautiful little valley. It's hidden from view so it's also a secret valley. Absolutely stunning. Also the weather really started to pick up, the clouds parted and we saw blue skies and sunshine. What a turn up for the books. It was really warm and felt like it was actually June.
|At the summit. In the sunshine. Hooray!|
Headed back down to Barley village. Simply blown away by the loveliness of the season, the scenery and the sunshine. Can we have some more of this please!
