Clougha Pike

High on the fell below Grit Fell in the Forest of Bowland there is an arresting sight. Three stone boxes stand in line as if ready to accommodate guardsmen from Buck House. Those were constructed by environmental artist Andy Goldsworthy who studied at Preston Polytechnic (now UCLAN) in the 1970’s. On closer inspection you realise that they would be quite unsuitable for sentry duty or even chairs but nonetheless they make for a worthy objective on this exhilarating walk on the edge of Bowland.
