With its fen-like lowlands, coastal scenery, high fells of Bowland and the lush river valleys of the Ribble and Lune, Lancashire is a secret gem for walkers. It is a county of surprising diversity from its great Industrial heritage towns to its attractive, rural villages and its numerous historic monuments.
There can be no better way of exploring Lancashire than by foot; it has a number of satisfying long-distance paths - both inland and coastal - and, as this book shows, opportunity for a great number of circular walks in highly distinctive surroundings, including the Lune Valley, Formby Point and Forest of Bowland.
This walkers guide has 28 circular, graded walks all tried and tested by seasoned walkers. Each includes an extract of the map showing the route, detailed directions and notes on things to see and do. The routes range from extended strolls to exhilarating hikes, so there is something for everyone.
