A guidebook to 40 circular walks in in two of Lancashire’s largest Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – the Forest of Bowland, an area of 310 square miles, and the ‘bewitching’ countryside of Pendle to the south. The walks range between 3 and 12.5 miles in length and are all illustrated with extracts of OS mapping.

The diverse range of routes include four Marilyns – Ward’s Stone, Pendle Hill, Longridge Fell and Fair Snape Fell. The walks are spread across the region, with bases including Caton, Dunsop Bridge, Slaidburn, Clitheroe and Pendle. All the walks are punctuated with snippets of information on the natural and cultural history of the region, from witches to wildlflowers.

The Forest of Bowland and Pendle 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.
