Worsaw Hill Walk.

Before the sun broke through the clouds yesterday and all the social distancing sunbathing and street parties commenced, we headed out for a walk up Worsaw Hill. The grassy limestone knoll is walkable from my hometown of Clitheroe, we managed an eight mile circular route before lunch time. πŸ™‚ Here are a few images from our morning.

Lambs and Pendle Hill.

And views toward Kemple End and Clitheroe.
Violets.
Pretty path towards Chatburn village.

From Chatburn we headed for the river. Hugo had again rolled in something dead! Time for a dip.

This was a quiet walk with great views, wildlife and if done in the future, places to find refreshment. Also for film buffs, Worsaw Hill appears in Whistle Down The Wind , which was made locally.

Thanks for joining us. Hugo is clean again. 😘

  1. What a nice walk you had, all three of you obviously enjoyed it. Hugo looks so adorable and the Great Garbo pose of the heron made me smile. πŸ™‚

  2. Looks like a nice walk – I remember Downham from when I was a kid, my mum took me there a few times for picnics by the stream. Your last four words made me smile – why is it dogs seem to love rolling in dead things? πŸ™‚

  3. Another great walk Shazza, and lovely pics. Will consult the wildflower book to see if it throws any light on your mystery riverside plant. Looks like it grows in a similar fashion to delphiniums? Got a few mystery plants to identify from today’s walk in the dunes! Just one of the pleasures of being out and about. x

  4. Looks like a lovely walk, you did well to get out before it got really hot. I can’t seem to get a very clear enlargement of the mystery flower – is it large white flowers?

      1. Not sure. Have seen honesty out and flowering on recent walks. I will have to do some research. The base leaves were big like rhubarb. It’s a mystery!

      2. Had a look using a plant i d app and it’s coming up as a sweet coltsfoot from the Butterbur family. That’s the nearest I can get to it. Who knows!

  5. What is it that makes dogs roll iin dead things? Hope the swim helped the smell. I loved Whistle down the wind, wonderful film. It looks like a lovely walk, I enjoyed all 8 miles!

    1. Thanks Cathy. I haven’t watched the film in a long time, time for a rewatch!
      Yes we washed H when we got home too. He’s a bigger! X

  6. Another lovely walk. I’ve done the river between west bradford and chatburn a few times but this is another one I’ll have to remember for the future!
