Hills of South West Lancashire

Public Transport based walk with Lorraine Kane.

15.0 mi

350m

The walk leader lives in Appley Bridge so will meet people there.

Varied walk across pretty undulating farmland, canal paths, quiet back lanes (some road walking requied).  Four hills in total with hopefully good views of Lancashire.  Reasonably brisk pace required to complete in daylight.
