When I decided on a walk in this area I found that there were practically no footpaths or bridleways - have a look at the map. I went ahead and under these circumstances, used perhaps more lanes than I would normally. These are mostly quiet but if that isn't your thing then you won't want to do this walk. On the other hand, the lanes are bordered with flowers and plentiful butterflies, the off-road sections are delightful and the going is very easy - level, few stiles, easy to follow and wide views from the Lancashire Coastal Footpath section. If you like the excitement of aircraft then the Eurofighters being tested at Warton will keep your interest. At the end of the walk you will find that Lytham is a delightful small town with plentiful restaurants and pubs and a welcoming atmosphere; we enjoyed our day out and hope that you will, too.

All fine up to waypoint 8 where the footpath was flooded and impassable. We persevered until the water was almost over our boots and then gave up, retraced our steps to waypoint 6 and carried on up Saltcotes Road to the A584 where a left turn took us to Warton to rejoin the route. It made it a longer walk with a lot more road walking but the return section on the Lancashire Coastal path was lovely. We walked the Lancashire Coastal Path in stages a few yeas ago - well worth doing. However, for this walk, until better weather a bus to Warton is probably the best option - or wellies instead of hiking boots!!
