This is primarily a river walk taking in some of the best parts (in my opinion) of the River Ribble. The walk covers both sides of the river and is part of the Ribble Way.

This is a very undemanding walk with very little that can be described as a hill. It is ideally suited for anyone with little experience of country walks, or for those a little older who just like a fairly easy day out.

Walked 01-10-22 An excellent low level walk with easy navigation despite the written walk stages being out of date. From the existing walkers comments it would appear that little has been done to keep the script up to date since at least 2004. WP1 - the Vauxhall Garage is now disguised as a SPAR grocery store. I didn't spot the footpath sign at the fork in the track but the way is obvious as the left fork only runs for a few yards and ends in a fairly newish housing estate. WP 7 - Due to erosion of the river bank (noted by signs at the entrance to Brungerly Park) the attempts I made to rejoin the riverbank always ended in obstruction. Suggest keep to the clear path through the park and exit onto the road at SD746 436. From here turn left and follow the road to rejoin the route at WP 011 This is an interesting alternative route as it is part of the sculpture trail that runs through the park. WP 20 - The gate in the wall now lies on the riverbank. Didn't spot a footpath sign but look for a gap in the stone wall just before the road turns sharp left and goes over the bridge. WP 22 - The first stile (Kissing Gate) no longer exists (though there are some remnants of it remaining) WP22 - After turning left the path leads directly to a stile in the fence. I could not see any other stile in the fence at this point. WP 26 - The large stile at Waddow Hall is a large kissing gate. WP 27 - The sign has been replaced with one that now directs traffic to the car parks. As previously said most of the 'stiles' are now kissing gates. The stiles that remain are generally in the fields on the north side of the river.

I agree with the previous comments. Most stiles are now kissing gates. You can even walk round the side of some of the remaining stiles!. Almost completely flat with well marked and easy paths. The 'big stile' in Waddow Hall no longer exists but the way is obvious. Other than that all signs in place and all directions are accurate. Done 16/10/05.

This was a lovely relaxing walk, with my partner and our dog Timber. Very muddy in parts but then it is mid October, in a river valley. We completed the walk in four hours and twenty minutes. Just be careful around step four to five. We strayed a little off track and ended up at the cemetery. Probably our own fault! Also a lot of the stiles now seem to be gates. All in all a lovely walk only a few miles from home.
