Description - Walking in Lancashire by Mary Welsh
Walking in Lancashire covers the delightful area from the Irish Sea to the Trough of Bowland and from Kirkby Lonsdale in the north to Cliviger in the south. The 40 walks are all circular with one exception and range in length from 8 to 19 km (5 to 13 miles) in length and extend around Cockerham, Lytham, Martin Mere and Croston to the heights of Boulsworth Hill, Ward's Stone, Fair Snape Fell and Pendle Hill. The routes are all are suitable for most walkers as there is a variety of terrain to be explored. Lancashire has a great variety of landscape, ranging from the low lying land around Cockerham, Lytham, Martin Mere and Croston to the heights of Boulsworth Hill, Ward's Stone, Fair Snape Fell and Pendle Hill. Its hedgerows, pastures, riverbanks, hills, moors and shoreline are rich in bird and plant life. Its many picturesque villages are rich too, in fine churches, ancient dwellings, pleasing bridges and interesting legends. Some of the walks are more like gentle strolls that make a good introduction to walking and help the less fit to prepare for more challenging walks.
