ON Sunday, October 4, 18 members embarked on a super ramble in initially dull, cloudy weather.

Fortunately after just a few hours the sun came out and we were treated to a beautiful autumn day.

The walk started at the pretty hamlet of Wycoller which is central to the Wycoller country park which is situated approximately three miles east of Colne.

The ancient hamlet is well worth a visit, featuring some ancient stone bridges and buildings.

The walk followed the designated footpath, The Bronte Way, through varied and picturesque scenery through the Trawden valley following the river most of the way until reaching the Ponden reservoir.

At this point the scenery changed completely as the route changed course to due north onto the Pennine Way on typical moorland paths until finally turning west on the return leg, briefly joining The Pendle Way.

We headed south at this point through fields and farms eventually taking us back to the Wycoller Country Park car park.
