Overview

'A walk of 36 Km through East Lancashire's beautiful countryside visiting the Nelson ILP Clarion House and the former Clarion Houses at Colne and Burnley ... Much of the route borrows sections of the Pendle Way, the Burnley Way and the Brontë Way. These routes are waymarked.

Category:Chorley
Distance (miles)3
Starting fromCroston
Overview

'Croston is a village situated on the banks of the River Yarrow approximately 10 miles South West of Preston. The name dates back to Saxon times. The first settlers were Scandinavian from the colonies in Ireland. The word "cross" is derived from old Irish and was adapted by the Norse men. This was added to the Anglo Saxon word "tun" meaning town or village forming the word "crostun", known today as Croston.' Alert At Review, I could no longer use the Web Links originally referenced here; so I have replaced the Web Site with a generic Entry for the Village (within which there is a very brief mention of the Trail).

Category:Ribble Valley
Starting fromDownham
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.'

Starting fromHuncoat
Overview

'Huncoat is a small village near Accrington situated on the slopes of the Pennine hills below the 1,340 feet high Great Hameldon. The place name was recorded in the 11th Century Domesday Book when Lancashire was still largely covered by peatmoss and woodland. In medieval times Huncoat was the cross-roads for two packhorse trade routes and expanded in the 19th Century with the Industrial Revolution. Between the two world wars the corridor alongside the railway line was heavily industrialised with collieries, coke works and brick yards ...'

Distance (miles)33
Starting fromStanhill
Overview

'Originally conceived ... in 1985 to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Ramblers Association. In it's original state it was a one day challenge walk over a 50km route. Ten members of the Group completed the inaugural walk in one day and were the first recipients of the original badge and certificate. It is, however, worth noting that the Hyndburn Group has also done the walk over both two and three days on various occasions.' ALERT Details of this Walk no longer seem accessible via the Hyndburn Ramblers Website. So I have replaced the Link with one to GPS Cycle and Walking Routes. However, note also the Link to the Prospects site below.
