Brown Wardle Hill

Location: Near Whitworth, Lancashire
Height: 400 metres (1,312 ft)
Summit Type: Grassy/Boggy/Rounded
Notable Summit Objects: Cairns, Old Way Marker Stone
Range: Pennines
A significant highpoint in the Rochdale area, Brown Wardle Hill rises above the town of Whitworth. The summit is marked by a cairn and there are a number of old way marker stones on the hill top meaning this was at one time part of one of the many pack horse trails that adorn the area. The views from the summit are reasonably good, west towards Whitworth, Cowm Reservoir and Hail Storm Hill, south towards Rushy Hill, east towards Blackstone Edge and south west towards Watergrove Reservoir.
