Ribble Valley ramble

Waj and Tim head off for a relatively easy ramble on West Bradford Fell which is near the Newton Fells above Clitheroe.  The Forest of Bowland always looks stunning in autumn and this walk offered fantastic views of Pendle Hill over the Ribble Valley.

West Bradford Fell

West Bradford Fell is a small hill named after the village of West Bradford, which is north of Clitheroe and about 25 miles west of the City of Bradford.

Sitting on the edge of the Forest of Bowland the village offers easy access to the rolling hills of the Newton Fells.  The fell is just on the edge of Grindleton Forest, offering superb views of Pendle Hill on a clear day.
