The start of FP 15 on the 11th March 2010.

The path rounds the brick wall slightly, following the edge of the field, to the next field boundary.

Here it crosses footpath 10 which leads to the New Inns public house in one direction, and down past Tan House Farm, and Cunliffe Farm, and across the field to Lee Lane, ducking under the old Great Harwood railway line.

The path carries on after this junction to Blackburn Old Road. This run through a custom made section of field, bound on both sides by a fence and wall creating a corridor to the road.

Once at Blackburn Old Road, the path crosses over and continues over a cattle grid, but before this at the end of the corridor a new bench was placed at the roadside, for walkers and ramblers to rest their weary legs. This bench was placed here by this website in conjunction with Rishton PROSPECTS panel.
