From here, poking out above the trees in the surrounding park you get amazing views across the Forest of Bowland and out to Morecombe Bay. The traditional triangulation pillar is just one of a number of different types used by the Ordnance Survey over the years. I've no idea how the phrase entered my vocabulary - probably spending time reading and/or listening to more likely cliché ridden material than is good for me. Followed the footpath through Norbreck farmyard and up a small rise for an easy bag on a gloriously sunny day. Once back on the paved path I headed north towards Black Moss Reservoir and towards Marsden, joining up with the Pennine Way path again just after the reservoir.

In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries the timbered farmhouse buildings on the east and north of the Tower and the Entrance Hall were added. Anglezarke Reservoir is the largest reservoir in the Rivington chain to the west of Anglezarke in Lancashire, England. Also known as Tor Hill, or simply 'the Tor' by locals, Musbury Tor is a conspicuous flat-topped hill that dominates the skyline on the approach into Haslingden from Accrington. Birtle Hill is a mountain summit in the The South Pennines from Liverpool to Nottingham region in the county of Lancashire, England.If you want to see the route on OS Maps and download a GPX file here’s the link and here’s a zipped GPX file. I think that arises from the variety of locations; some are next to a road and others significant distances over pathless moorland.

Doubling back off the track to the north further on I climbed a locked gate onto land with a covered reservoir atop a field of long wet grass. An excellent explanation of UK coordinate systems can be found in "A guide to coordinate systems in Great Britain" which can be downloaded from here. By this point of running the route I was trotting rather than running and grateful for little traffic. The spin I would put on this is that it's not a new walking project, but a continuation of a general trig-bagging endeavour; it's just focussing on a new map square.James Kay sold the tower to Elizabeth and Anne Appleton who leased the tower to William Rigg, a calico manufacturer, whose daughter, Ellen, wrote her memories of Turton now published as “Victorian Children at Turton Tower”.
