  • Next Walk : Saturday 10th February 2024

    Our February walks are led by Ian and Abby and are from the picturesque village of Chipping on the slopes above the River Loud in the area of outstanding natural beauty that is the Forest of Bowland, Lancashire.

    A walk (8 miles)

    is a typical fell walk and although we don’t cover a great distance, only eight miles, we will be climbing. You will however, if weather permits, be rewarded with some spectacular views. We start the circular walk in the village of Chipping and climb to Saddle Fell. We continue across open moorland to Snape Fell and then swing round to the top of Parlick. There is a steep descent down Parlick to Fell Foot and then a straightforward walk back to Chipping. Total ascent 461 metres

     

    B walk (7.3 miles)

    is also a circular walk of 7.3 miles with a height gain of 234 metres. The walk follows a route going east to Knot Hill and Greystonley, and then turning west to Lickhurst Farm, returning back down to Chipping via Stanley (251m high spot) and the Ribble Valley Trail. Nominally 400ft height gained, 755 total.

    There are public toilets at the car park, a cafe and two pubs in the village so all essential needs met.
    Looking forward to seeing you on the coach,
