Ascent Trip Report

Parked at public car park in Trough Gate. Followed unmade road towards Britannia and then right up the hill. Right again following the road to Green Brow. Through their yard and then diagonally across a grass field following the public footpath to a further farmstead with its guard goat! Stile over Metropolitan boundary wall and immediate right. Bee line to the summit trig with its rather large pool. Then due west to meet the Rossendale Way which I followed south until turning west along the path down to Shawforth. Back along the road to the car park.
