Whitewell Pot (Bowland)



Permission can often be granted at short notice but may sometimes take a little longer as the keeper needs to be consulted about local restrictions due to pheasant breeding and shooting.

Access for BCA member clubs with PLI cover.

Please note that the bottom of the circular gate at the entrance is secured by a chain with C links. You do not need a spanner to open the gate
