“With its fen-like lowlands, its coastal scenery, the high fells of Bowland and the lush river valleys of the Ribble and Lune, Lancashire is a county of surprising diversity from its great Industrial heritage towns to its attractive, rural villages and its numerous historic monuments. There can be no better way of exploring Lancashire than by foot; it has a number of satisfying long-distance paths – both inland and coastal – and, as this book shows, opportunity for a great number of circular walks in highly distinctive surroundings, including the Lune Valley, Formby Point and Forest of Bowland.”
