Great views on all sides on a clear day

A monument to Robert Peel, once a Bury MP and Home Secretary. Looks a little forlorn but must have been great views across over and beyond Ramsbottom at one time. Easy walk from the town if you don't mind steps !

Great walk and views
Mar 2021 • Couples
This isn’t a difficult walk but has a lot of satisfaction for the minimal effort needed. ( as a hiker ) This is great walk for families and dog owners. At the top you could have a picnic with the views around you. The tower at the top is very interesting. Would walk here again and explain the different walking routes from the tower.

It’s been awhile since I have climbed Holcombe hill to get to the tower, but once up there the views are incredible especially on a clear day. I used to go up regularly as a child, most Easter Sundays for as long as I can remember. If you are visiting Ramsbottom and you want a walk you won’t be disappointed!

Great walk up from Ramsbottom station. Dog leading the way. Wet and wild at the top. With this great dark tower looking over the moor. V impressive. Amazing views out to Manchester City centre before the weather closed in. Well worth a visit. Legend has it the tower is occasionally open and you can climb the steps to the top. Will be good to do that post covid !!

Lovely walk up Holcolmbe Hill with my seven-year-old niece to reach Peel Tower. An easy walk up but not buggy-friendly. Great views from the top.

yep, me and my wife stoped at bures park with our caravan, and set off to ramsbottom, then waked to the peel tower, but at our age it was a climb ? but on reaching the top the view up here was great, and we then continued to Rawtenstall, great day but the weather was good too.

Great walk offering lovely lengthy views.

Great place to go and see 360 degree views, looking down towards Manchester. Fairly easy walk, you'll probably be at the top in under 30 / 45 minutes depending which way and how fast you go, feel free to take our time.

Marvellous walk
Oct 2019 • Friends
We went on a 2 1/2 hours' walk up the hill from Holcombe to Peel Tower, along the top to the Pilgrims Cross and back round and absolutely loved the stunning views of the West Pennines Moors and surrounding area. Not to be missed. The path can be boggy in places, so sturdy footwear is a must.

Great walk
Oct 2019
Fantastic views. Easy 40 min walk up to tower and back. Loads of options to make the walk longer. Suitable for all ages as well. There was a flock of sheep there so be very careful if you have a dog with you.
