Summary: The Anglezarke Loop is a challenging multi-use trail around the uplands of the West Pennine Moors which was opened in 2014. It is a circular walk which explores Anglezarke, a sparsely populated civil parish in the Borough of Chorley in Lancashire. Anglezarke is dominated by reservoirs that were built to supply water to Liverpool, and a large expanse of moorland with evidence of Bronze Age settlements. From the beginning of the walk at Rivington the walk goes in a anti-clockwise direction via Rivington Country Park, Brown Hill, Wilderswood, Montcliffe Stone Quarries, Holden's Plantation, Smithills Dean, Tippett House, Horrocks Fold, Dunscar Golf Course, Delph Reservoir, Stone Banks Plantation, Longworth Moor, Catherine Edge, Old Man's Hill, Hollinshead Hall (ruin), Tockholes Plantations, Roddlesworth Reservoir, Rake Brook Reservoir, The Goit, Wheelton Plantation, Stronstrey Bank, Anglezarke Reservoir, Yarrow Reservoir and Upper Rivington Reservoir.
