Pendle and the Ribble Walking Country

Pendle and the Ribble Walking Country

by: Paul Hannon
At the heart of Lancashire its major river is overlooked by its most famous hill, much of it set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The result is some splendid walking country.

Stride out over the moorland heights of Waddington and Longridge Fells, walk through history at Sawley and Whalley. Explore the celebrated 'Witch Country', and discover beautiful villages such as Waddington and Downham.

This guide contains 22 walks, concisely described, leading you to Pendle Hill's lofty summit and the Ribble's lush banks. A short introductory chapter describes the region and throughout the text information is provided on points of interest along the way, as well as practical and safety information. For each walk the route instructions are supported with a basic sketch map and clearly identifiable notes on points of interest along the way.
