Lancashire - A Dog Walker's Guide

Lancashire - A Dog Walker's Guide

by: Ron Freethy
On a fine day there is nothing quite so enjoyable, as a dog owner, than getting out into the countryside with your pet for a leisurely walk. Once you get off your home patch though, it is hard to know where you can walk safely with your dog and which pubs and cafes will welcome you both.

Here is a collection of 20 circular walks, varying in length between 2 and 7 miles, in the beautiful countryside of Lancashire. The walks have been designed with maximum off-lead time and minimum exposure to roads. There are delightful walks along the coast at Bolton-le-Sands and the saltmarshes of Hest Bank; beside the lovely Croasdale Brook at Slaidburn and the Greenberfield Locks on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal at Barnoldswick; through the beautiful woods of the Calder Vale; over Duddle Hill with its panoramic views of Longridge Fell; and across the open moorland around Anglezarke.

All the walks include details of how to get to the start; distance and terrain, dog factors such as livestock and stiles, recommended dog-friendly refreshment stops, numbered route directions, points of interest along the way and nearest veterinary practice.
