Walking in the Forest of Bowland and Pendle

Walking in the Forest of Bowland and Pendle

by: Terry Marsh
Lancashire boasts two sizeable Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The larger is the Forest of Bowland, with an area of 310 square miles, and this, plus the 'bewitching' countryside of Pendle to the south, is the region covered by this book. These areas provide vastly differing terrain; from the lush farmlands of the Ribble Valley to the more rugged rough pastures of the Forest of Bowland uplands and the huge boggy uplifts of the main Bowland massif itself. It's all wonderfully wild walking country.

This guidebook describes 40 diverse circular walks suitable for walkers with navigational skills. All the walks have clear route instructions and are illustrated with OS 1:50,000 map extracts and colour photos. Additional information provided includes the natural and cultural history of the region; from wild flowers to witches. The walk locations are:
