River Ribble Ramble

Direct Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Dana Koper.

6.8 mi


A leisurely stroll, little further afield full of loveliness.

The route, shy of seven miles starts from the picturesque village of Downham which lies in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, at the foot of Pendle Hill. It then takes us to the next village which offers ruins of Sawley Abbey and refreshments in the local pub. Heading back we walk alongside the River Ribble and in no time we arrive in Downham where more refreshments are available (pub with a beer garden overlooking Pendle Hill / Ice Cream shop – if still open).

This might not be a dog friendly route due to fields with little lambs.

Poor phone signal in the village.
