This pocked-sized guidebook contains 30 day walks across the West Pennine Moors, an area that covers over 80 square miles, all of it easily accessible for day walking.

The West Pennine Moors, located between the towns of Chorley, Bolton, Horwich, Ramsbottom, Haslingden, Oswaldtwistle and Darwen, comprise of moorland and reservoir scenery.

The Walking on the West Pennine Moors ranges from short, simple outings not far from civilisation, to tough moorland hikes. The many valley walks are within the ability of anyone accustomed to recreational walking.

The longer walks on the moors, however, demand a good level of fitness and knowledge of the techniques and requirements necessary to travel safely in wild countryside in very changeable weather conditions, including the ability to use a compass and map properly.

Each walk description begins with a short introduction, and provides start and finish points, as well as a calculation of distance and ascent. The walks are grouped largely within the traditional areas of the moors. Not all the paths described in the text appear on maps. With only a small number of exceptions, paths are signposted, but not always waymarked.
