Lancashire Outstanding Circular Walks

Lancashire Outstanding Circular Walks

by: Terry Marsh
170 miles of invigorating walking across the county embracing secluded and delightful Arnside and Silverdale, in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, along the River Lune and Fylde coast, amid idyllic Ribble Valley countryside, following packhorse trails in East Lancashire's South Pennines, and over the windswept moorland of the West Pennines around Anglezarke and Rivington.

This Pathfinder Guide makes the ideal companion for country walks throughout Lancashire. Clear and easy to follow directions are accompanied by detailed Ordnance Survey Explorer 1:25,000 scale maps and specially commissioned photographs. With 28 colour-coded routes to choose from, all tried and tested by seasoned walkers and varying from extended strolls to exhilarating hikes, there is a walk to suit all situations.

The guide introduces you to the area and highlights the most scenic walks. Each walk entry begins with a box giving start, distance, height gain, time, parking and route terrain. This is followed by a short overview highlighting the routes features. The following route finding instructions have paragraphs numbered corresponding to numbers on the OS map making navigation safe and easy. There are GPS references for all the route waypoints and the route is highlighted in yellow on the map. The guide also includes information on where to park, good pubs and places of interest along the route.
