The route soon left busy Colne downhill to cross Colne Water. It turned up a walled and tree-lined, uphill lane, with paving slabs which I imaging could be slippery in wet weather. The steady climb up a tarmacked lane then several fields afforded excellent views back over Colne, with Pendle Hill beyond. There was a bench at the half-way highpoint, then a short bit of quiet road before reaching a series of footpaths down into Trawden. Just towards the end, at grid reference SD 91028 38746, the obvious route down steps around a garden wall, is not the one marked on the map, although a local told me the map route was a Public Right of Way, even though it went through someone’s garden. You would probably not even notice this slight diversion unless you were very closely following the GPS, so I don’t think this is a cause to fail this route, especially as it’s a beautiful 5* route otherwise.
