The walk makes its way through the quiet streets of Longton to bridleways and then the edge of the salt marshes bordering the Ribble. The distant views of the hills are tantalising and very clear in winter, which is the best time to find birdlife here. A stroll around the prize-winning Brickcroft Nature Reserve is a bonus which can be added to the walk.

First ramble we have ever done we both enjoyed the nature reserve and the walk along the ribble way section was heavy going through some of the fields but look forward to our next walk

Lovely walk especially through the nature reserve but not recommended after very heavy rain - it was more of a lake than a bridleway at waymark 8 and the fields were absolutely waterlogged - talk about mud, glorious mud!! The ranger at the visitor centre was very interested in the walkingworld guide especially when she spotted her landrover in one of the photos!
