Dean Clough

Image of the Dean Clough map

Dean Clough is the water catchment area for two reservoirs west of Great Harwood.  The area is very runnable, being mostly sheep grazed rough open fields, but with drainage features, old workings, plantations and ruins.  The largest plantation offers good technical orienteering.  An extension to the north-east of the original map was added for the Night & Day event in December 2013, comprising Billington wood and Spring Bank.  This extension adds some classic forest, steep scarp, quarry, crag and gorse features).
