After spending the morning and early afternoon at RSPB Leighton Moss, we drove to Cross of Greet in Lancashire for an ascent of White Hill. Having checked the hillbagging website in advance of setting off, I suspected this hill would not be fantastic given numerous comments relating to bog and the fact the hill was dull.

From the small parking area, I set off following the line of fenceposts from start to summit. The ground was wet from the outset and was continuously so to the summit.

As if the bog was not bad enough it was soon accompanied by hags.

On reaching the summit area I first visited what looks like the remains of a small tower before visiting the summit trig point.

After taking a single photo from the summit I followed the line of fence posts back to the car.

The only thing this hill had going for it was good views towards Ingleborough and wildlife. I saw Roe Deer, Hare, numerous birds and a couple of beetles.

This walk allegedly forms part of the Lancashire Way. I can only hope that the rest of this Long Distance Path is better than this section.
