Tips

  • Richard Midgley

    Doing this clockwise from summit this is the first real climb of the mtl. Not overly steep but a long climb on cobbles and rough hardcore and gravel. Built by the cotton mill workers during the American civil war when the confederate army blockaded the ports in the southern states cutting off supplies of raw cotton to the Mills round Lancashire. Low interest loans from the government saw the mill workers employed to build this road over rooley Moor to improve links to the Rawtenstall Valley.
