Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Al.
A pleasant countryside and river walk from the historic town of Clitheroe, partly along the River Ribble and ending up in Whalley. Not to many ascents. Suitable for everyone, including those new to walking.

[There maybe an option to exit early, if required at approx the 8 mile stage and head towards Langho Stn (rather than Whalley Stn)].
This is a joint walk with Manchester Weekend Walkers
