Clowbridge reservoir to the Singing ringing tree, Burnley

The singing ringing tree is a sculpture, made from galvanised steel pipes, that sits on crown point overlooking Burnley, Lancashire.

This post is for accountability that we actually went for a walk and I practised what I preach, to get outside for your wellbeing. Why? Because in all honesty we did take rather a holistic route! I pride myself on my honesty and I’m not going to tell you I made no map reading mistakes, or that everything was wonderful.  We set off from Clowbridge reservoir heading for Dunnockshaw community woodland and from there to crown point.

We did have a good walk and lots of lovely fresh air. The wind was howling and I’ve got a wind burnt face and my ears wish I’d worn ear muffs. The kids were laughing because they decided the walk was good for mental health, as I was so worried about getting lost that I must have forgotten everything else I was worrying about!

The howling wind meant the singing ringing tree was in fact singing, its low haunting sound.

If you don’t fancy a walk there is parking at the Singing ringing tree and a short walk from there to the sculpture. 

We parked at Clowbridge reservoir BB11 5PF.
