Route Outline

This walk visits a medieval church, a Victorian monument on heather clad moor, two ancient burial mounds and a peaceful stretch of the Leeds - Liverpool Canal. There is a short steep section as the path descends from the moor. St Andrews Church is worth a closer look. Built in the 14th Century it contains not only monuments to both a local knight and a crusader but also pieces of pre Norman crosses.
