The Valley of Desolation

The Valley of Desolation The Valley of Desolation

Named because of a storm which once laid waste here, the so called "Valley of Desolation" is actually a pleasant wooded valley just east of Bolton Abbey.

A footpath leads along the valley, taking in the waterfalls of Posforth Gill before ascending across open moorland to the summit of Simon's Seat.
