Meandering through wooded valleys, crossing a ford  and along fields with views to the Pennines

Picking up the Ribble Way and following the River Ribble back in to Ribchester.

When we arrive back you are welcome to join Stephen and Mike and go to the Black Bull pub for a post walk drink and/or have some food there. Or as they say in Lancashire- let's go out for our tea.

You can leave your car at the car park as it is just round the corner. But make sure you have enough time on your ticket.

Nearer the time , we will message you to see if you are interested in having food  and will book a table accordingly.
