The top of Healey Nab has a charm of its own. A mystical place, where, considering its closeness to Chorley you can still find solitude. Another factor which gives it its charm is the variety of landscapes it offers, old woods, new woods, open spaces, quarries, ponds and colours that change magnificently with the seasons. It has it all
