Evening walk to Thornton

A sunny June evening is a pleasant time for a short walk to Thornton.
Our route is along the canal at Greenberfield then cutting across the fields from Dodge Carr Laithe to Thornton Church.
After crossing the road, we followed the path through the fields past the radio mast at Nutter Cote, crossed the golf course and returned along Ghyll Lane.
Plenty of grass was being cut amongst the drumlins, whilst ducklings and goslings preened themselves on the grass by the water's edge with swallows and martins swooping overhead.
The trig point near the radio mast is a good 360 degree viewpoint, with fine views over Barlick to Weets and Pendle Hill.
