Walk description may contain detailed information on the start point for this walk.
The South Pennines stretch from the northern boundary of the Peak District to the southern boundary of the Yorkshire Dales. Consisting of high rolling moorland, intersected by deep valleys, there is nowhere in this region that exceeds 2000 feet. The moors and valleys are where the old rivals, Lancashire and Yorkshire meet and where too the rival industries of cotton and wool. South Pennines Walking Guide
Lancashire offers many walking opportunities with a number of areas of high ground. The highest point is Gragareth (near Whernside) at 627 metres. The rivers drain west from the Pennines. The coast is backed by a coastal plain. Excellent areas for walking include Arnside and Silverdale National Landscape, Beacon Fell Country Park and the Forest of Bowland AONB, which includes Pendle Hill. Further south are the West Pennine Moors and the Forest of Rossendale.
