Bit of a cheat this one but hey:) Down Peel Street to Bacup Road then catch the bus to Broadley, just north of Healy. Walk down Station Road to the old Broadley station then up west past the mill lodge to join Rooley Moor Road. Follow that until Lee Quarry above Stacksteads then continue west along the Pennine Bridleway around the south of Cowpe reservoir to Lench. Drop down into Waterfoot, west along Bacup Road and north along Burnley Road East to Heys Steps on the left in the wall. Follow these to Staghills Road, then west along to Nechurch Road and continue west back to Springhill. 8.5 miles.

The route along Rooley Moor Road is part of the Mary Towneley Loop of the Pennine Bridleway.
