Boulsworth Hill from Wycoller, Colne, Lancashire (Walk)
Meet Leader: TBC
A more strenuous walk than what we will have been used to over the winter, however not really due to height gain but more because of the fact you will definitely want gaiters! An entertaining walk though of about 9 miles taking in Lad Law (Boulsworth Hill). Lovely views over to Pendle Hill from the summit. Great for those who love a good rambling trudge over unadulterated wild moor.
