Once over the stream the path joins footpath 41 in Great Harwood, leading to Lords House farm and joining footpath 42.
The path follows the field edge, and the stream on the Rishton side of the boundary.
Two thirds of the way along the field footpath 18 turns off at 90 degrees, and heads for Lee Lane.
This footpath joins 18, and crosses back over the stream, by way of a footbridge, into Great Harwood becoming footpaths 38 and 39. Footpath 39 carries straight on up the hill to Smallshaw hey Farm, and footpath 38 turns right, following the stream once more to the rear of the Lidgett Hotel.
