I've decided to view at this point as well.
Can't work out whether to ride / walk up the A58 from the town, across the Pennine Bridleway from the other side of the M62 or just drop down on the MTB on a off road section along the climb.
All these options will involve parking the Van and walking or riding.
I'm going to nip up over the weekend and have a mooch about to see if there's anywhere to drop onto the route on the MTB then take it from there. A bit back from the A58 looks like a road that comes over the hill but looks like it Water Board property........
Might be walking up but isn't that the section of the A58 that's really steep ? Ages since I've been that way.
