Crossing the A62 Manchester Road, you will follow a footpath uphill to pick up the Colne Valley Circular on the southern flank of the valley and wander back through fields towards Yew Tree Lane, a steep lane heading back down into the village, crossing the A62 and then down the steps to the bridge over the river.
