Is this Lancashires best stretch of countryside?

Pendle Hill 1831 FT.

Sunday 6th sept. 09.
Today there's been a short window of better weather, temp. 15 C . and it didn't rained until 4pm, so it's been great to set out on a 6 miles walk to lift the blues of the past weeks very unsettled weather. There's been four of us out today, Jim, Shirley, Audrey(my wife) and my self, we've walked from Chipping in the Forest of Bowland along the sides of the Hodder Valley which joins the Ribble Valley near Whalley. We haven't seen anything special but we've just enjoyed being out walking in probably the best stretches of countryside in Lancashire. However, one small discovery, a Salmon and Sea trout fish pass on a small tributary of the River Hodder, this wet my appetite for further visits in the next two months when I hope to video the Salmon and Sea trout ascending the fish pass to spawn in the small streams high on the Bowland fells.
