A loop through Wycoller then up to the top of Boulsworth Hill (Ladlaw). Taking in parts of the Pendle way, Bronte way, The pennine bridleway and what used to be called Trawden flags which I believe is an old pack house route although I'm not sure

Just found this online so not a packhorse route

Trawden flags

These stone flags were laid across the countryside over 100 years ago. Their purpose was to provide a path for the vicar as he walked between the churches in Trawden and Colne on a Sunday, and to help stop his robes and feet becoming caked in mud.
