Overview

A guidebook to 40 circular walks in the north of England in two of Lancashire's largest Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty - the Forest of Bowland, an area of 310 square miles (800km²), and the 'bewitching' countryside of Pendle to the south. These areas provide vastly differing terrain - from the lush farmlands of the Ribble valley to the more rugged rough pastures of the Forest of Bowland uplands and the huge boggy uplifts of the main Bowland massif itself. It's all wonderfully wild walking country. This routes, which are suitable for walkers with navigational skills, include four 'Marilyns' - Ward's Stone, Pendle Hill, Longridge Fell and Fair Snape Fell. All walks are illustrated with OS mapping and colour photos, and provide information on the natural and cultural history of the region - from wild flowers to witches.
