A 10 mile walk with a steady ascent and some ups and downs in between.

Ribchester, a town steeped in history from Roman times, houses the remains of a Roman bath house and a great museum of the town and its history - well worth a separate visit!

Longridge Fell is our target and we head out via farmland and wooded tracks as we begin our ascent, steady at first steeper at the end but nothing too challenging. The views from the Fell are very well worth it and a great place to stop for lunch with a view especially if we extend the walk very slightly to Jeffrey Point - a great local vantage point but we can see what everyone wants to do on the day.

Returning on our descent though Duddell Hill Farm and Stydd Hall, we emerge back in Ribchester and our journey home.
