Ribble Way

Walking the Ribble Way

Walking the Ribble Way

authors: Dennis and Jan Kelsall
Leading walkers through some of the finest scenery in northwest England, the 72-mile Ribble Way traces the full length of the Ribble valley. The route is described from the Lancashire village of Longton, near the estuary mouth, to the source of the Ribble high on Cam Fell in the Yorkshire Dales. Although not always by the river the valley route winds through some beautiful countryside, alternating between fields, quiet tracks, lanes, and wooded cloughs, with enticing views to the surrounding hills of Pendle, Bowland and the western Dales.

This full colour guide breaks the route into seven convenient stages with variants included for day walkers. There are clear instructions supported by Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 scale mapping showing the route highlighted. There is plenty of additional information on points of interest and historical features along the route together with numerous colour photographs. This information is contained in separate panels to easily distinguish it from route finding instructions. Details of public transport, local facilities and a route summary table are also included. This comprehensive guide is an indispensable planning aid and companion to the walk.

Longton to Penwortham Bridge - 8.25 miles
Penwortham Bridge to Ribchester - 2.25 miles
Ribchester to Brungerley Bridge - 12.5 miles
