Open moorland. 
Nick o'Pendle 1995 map now (2014) updated with numerous new minor paths across the moorland, but water, contour and rock features are unchanged.

On the flanks of the moor the terrain is mostly runnable grassland with man-made mineral extraction detail in many places - spoil heaps, gullies, pits and old tracks.  The small wooded area to the south was felled in 2011.

A major characteristic of the moor top is the peaty soil giving rise to wet grassy ground and scattered seasonal ponds.  Only medium and large ponds are marked.
