|MEET: Walker Fold carpark (SD 676123) Parking is free – no toilets.
WALK: The walk goes from the carpark up along Burnt Edge, down to the old Belmont Road and round to Rivington Pike and back onto Belmont Road. The route across the moor to Winter Hill has a rough potentially boggy section for about 300 yards. Apart from this the paths are generally good. About 900ft of ascent.
DIRECTIONS: From Warrington take the M62 then M61 to Junction 5. Turn along the A676 towards Bolton and left at traffic lights at Knutshaw Bridge onto the A58 (there is a petrol station on the corner). Follow the A58 towards Bolton crossing the A673 to traffic lights at the B6402. Turn left and continue to Chorley Old Road go across the slightly staggered junction past a pub (Bob’s Smithy Inn post code BL1 7PX) onto Walker Fold Road. The car park is on the left in less than a mile. About one hour. There are several variations on the journey that lead to Junction 5 on the M61.
