Walking in Lancashire

Walking in Lancashire

by: Mary Welsh
Lancashire's richness lies in its great variety of landscape, ranging from low-lying areas around Cockerham, Lytham, Martin Nere and Croston to the heights of Boulsworth Hill, Ward's Stone, Fair Snape Fell and Pendle Hill. This guide takes the walker along Lancashire's rivers, by its woodlands, moors and coastline, and to the county's historic sites. From the Irish Sea to the Trough of Bowland and from Kirkby Lonsdale in the north to Clivinger, near Burnley, in the south, explore the walks in this book and you will truly know Lancashire.

This comprehensive and popular guide describes 39 circular day walks from 5 to 13 miles and one linear route, each with full colour OS 1:50000 Landranger map extracts. They vary from gentle strolls to fell-top hikes, so there are walks suitable for all abilities, with a good selection of east introductory walks. Each walk begins with a panel giving distance, time, terrain details and OS Explorer map sheet number. A short overview precedes the detailed route finding instructions and numerous colour photographs further illustrate the text.
