Haslingden grane

Haslingden grane lies in the north-east corner of the West Pennine Moors.

The grane valley has an intriguing air of desolation which still haunts the many ruined farmsteads, which were abandoned when the reservoirs were built to supply drinking water to the growing industrial towns.

Today the picturesque reservoirs of Calf Hey, Ogden and Holden Wood and the surrounding moorland offer visitors some excellent walking routes. The area also plays host to an interesting and varied array of wildlife and unique habitat, with interesting bird life present all year round.
