This is a not too strenuous walk and there is only a small amount of climbing. It follows the Ribble to start with, but then goes from farm to farm through pastures, with good waymarking. There are good views of Pendle Hill and Longridge Fell and plenty of facilities in the village.

at waymark 26, the instructions say bear half left....this should be half right.

A dismal overcast day, however the walk following the direction of the Ribble was very pleasant up to WP9 at Butcher Fold Farm. A slavering dog here meant I detoured around Lower Cockhill Farm rejoining the route at Lord's Farm, where, once again, free range dogs became the issue, however thankfully the owners were in the vicinity and I could proceed unheeded. I carried on to WP18. The radiating five footpaths were not obvious at this point, only a path to the left, so I followed this. It was only when I turned to read WP19 on a new sheet of paper that I was instructed to ignore this left path, rather too late, I feel. Perhaps the instruction on WP18 could be amended to say ignore the left path, instead of leaving it until WP19, when the path has already been followed. Ribchester and its environs has some lovely scenery and I can recommend the café next to the car park back in Ribchester!

Did this walk again on 28/12/05 to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary and ended with a meal at one of our favourites, the White Bull. I think it was even more beautiful on a cold, frosty day than in the summer - and the icy conditions meant we were walking on the mud not in it!!

29/10/05 - Ian Fairnie. Very pleasant walk. Nothing strenuous although quite muddy in places - why do farmers always put the gates at the muddiest part of the field... All directions very easy to follow and accurate.
