Eight-mile circular walk mostly on good quality farm tracks with some road sections along quiet roads. Walk starts from Bickerstaffe Village with on-road parking at start and begins along pedestrian footpath beside country lanes for this early section up to entry to Coach Road. Some good views over plain to Billinge Hill ridge on this section. Coach Road crosses rail track, offering good 360-degree views over remainder of route, before following well-maintained farm tracks to loop back over rail track and on to Newbridge fishing lakes. Having passed the lakes the route takes a footpath, difficult to spot as no signage, along southern edge of field and over small footbridge to pass Voces Farm onto good quality farm tracks. These tracks lead to Ox Hey Farm with good views to Maghull ridge. The final section of the walk passes Bickerstaffe Hall on its way back to the start.

Cleared the blackberries and nettles from the footbridge this morning. Image at!AiYKMn6RgSyUlkbUtWA0EQF8XqHA of cleared footpath.

Thanks for the notification regarding the footpath obstruction, sorry you had to use the lanes back rather than the more relaxing footpaths. I'm due to check out another walk in that area in a few weeks time so I'll pack some secateurs and gloves and see if I can clear the route over the footbridge.

Walked 27-08-22. Decent walk until I reached Waypoint 11. No visible signs of any footpath but GPS confirmed I was following the path as indicated on the OS map.The field is somewhat overgrown though passable but just after the Sewage Works there is a footbridge which is completely overgrown with vegetation. The approach to the footbridge is also badly overgrown and uneven so was unable to determine if there were any hidden trip/fall hazards. Returned to Bickerstaffe using roads/lanes.
