Overview

Access to PDFs of a score of leaflets describing walking routes around and about the Ribble Valley: 'Positioned in the ageless landscape of rural Lancashire, this area remains relatively unexplored, the majority of which forms part of the Forest of Bowland .. The two historic market towns of Clitheroe and Longridge are surrounded by 44 villages, the largest being Whalley, each set in serene and unspoilt countryside. It is this timeless beauty, along with the warm hospitality, which attracts visitors to return time and time again'.

Overview

'Downham has long had a reputation as an attractive village, often quoted as the most beautiful village in Lancashire. It may have rivals but it certainly is largely unspoilt – no television aerials or obtrusive satellite dishes, no overhead wires or roadside yellow lines, and minimal signing in the village. There is an old world charm with the setting of the church on the crest of a limestone ridge above the village, Downham Hall behind the church on the same ridge and cottages neatly arranged at both the top of church brow and another group around the main street and village stream.'

Overview

'Geological sites and landforms are protected in the same way as important biological sites. Nationally important locations are listed as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSls) while regionally there are RIGS (Regionally Important Geological and Geomorphological Sites) which in Lancashire are known as Geodiversity Heritage Sites (GHS) ...  The Ribble Way provides a ready-made excursion into many of the geological landscapes of Lancashire and the Yorkshire Dales. These short geotrails provide a way of exploring them. A geological guide to the whole route is planned for the future.'
