 Lancashire Walks

Like West Yorkshire, Lancashire might be an area too easily written off for walking because of its industrial past and major conurbations but this too has great Pennine scenery.

North of the River Ribble is the beautiful Forest of Bowland. This is shown off to a good extent by my Hareden Fell Circuit. Let us not also forget that Gragareth, Lancashire's highest point reaches to 627 metres with wonderful long distance views of The Lake District and Morecambe Bay. My walk to the Three Men of Gragareth encompasses this hill although it is listed under The Yorkshire Dales because that is where the walk starts.

Lancashire walks are likely to be less busy than those in the nearby Yorkshire Dales or Cumbria, so are ideal for those seeking peace and tranquility.
