Public Transport based walk with Al.
***JOINT WALK WITH MANCHESTER WEEKEND WALKERS***
This is a beautiful walk through the South edge of the Forest of Bowland. Nice rolling hills, fields and woods. Parts of the walk is along the lovely River Ribble. Maybe the odd Lancs pub (or two).
On the way up, we have the opportunity for a 'pit stop' in Clitheroe; whilst awaiting for the one and only Dalesrail service.
Coming back on the Clitheroe to Manchester Victoria line, there maybe options for a stop off at the Strawberry Duck [Entwistle station] for a quick pint (or two)
