We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

Lovely route with good variety and views. There's quite a few stiles, a boggy moorland and a bit of 007...

Earby is a small town which is not too difficult to find your way out of and you're soon walking along field edges. Just past Thick Bank there's a very short stretch of road walking and then a stile hidden in the wall. From here, you climb up and then find yourself on Roger Moor... Roger starts off fine as you follow the worn path and then it becomes proper moorland boggy (and this was after a dry spell). So now you must find the best route you can, trying not to get your feet too wet. At least there's a wall to follow.
Leave the moor via a wide, but very dilapidated, stile walking across some sheep fields. Cross the road and the path is a little unclear around the farm buildings of Earl Hall. Cut across the field to Throstle Nest Farm. Here the map shows rights of way both sides of the building however there was someone outside and he insisted that I took the longer route up the lane and came back past the building on the west side.
Some more fields, and then a long walk down the driveway of New House Farm. From here there is a road walk. It wasn't too busy, but nowhere to take refuge so I was glad to reach the next footpath opposite the golf clubhouse.
After crossing the A6068, you drop down into the woods. The path is not clear, in fact I lost it altogether and dropped straight down to Bent Clough farm. There are some picnic benches here then a bit further on by the lake is a cafe. There are also toilets, but they were shut when I went past.
Out of the park, there is a long climb up the quiet road, turning right to follow the metalled road through the houses. I didn't follow the EarTra route into Trawden, instead I took the footpath heading almost due south just after New Laithe Farm into Trawden.
I linked this walk to Trawden to Foulridge and then Foulridge to Earby to form a circular walk.
