Boulsworth Hill

Boulsworth Hill is a large expanse of moorland the highest point of the South Pennines of south-eastern Lancashire, England, separating the District of Pendle from Calderdale. Its summit, Lad Law, is 517 m (1,696 ft) above sea level, and commands views over Pendle Hill, the Forest of Bowland, the Yorkshire Dales, and the South Pennines.

This walk starts at  the car park just outside Wycoller due to the narrow access road. Follow the path that takes you into the heart of the village before crossing the eye-catching packhorse bridge towards the ruins of Wycoller Hall – thought to be the inspiration for Ferndean Manor in Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre. But instead of falling victim to a dramatic fire, this hall sadly fell into disrepair over the generations. Wycoller Hall, has a massive fireplace and alongside it, an unusual keyhole shaped recess.
