Join us on our February Adventure Walk around the pretty village of Downham in the Ribble Valley.

There's lots of reasons to join us on this visit!

For example, did you know the village has been a TV location? Google 'Born and Bred' to see for yourself how unspoilt the village has been kept by the Assheton family (Lord Clitheroe).

The circular walk starts from the centre of Downham at the free car park, grid ref. SD 78494 44090, or ask Sue & Andy for more detailed directions on how to find the car park. 

The route will be approx. 9.2k (5.7 miles) with 200m of ascent (Rivington was 400m ascent approx.).

This walk is mainly on public footpaths over farmland, which at this time of year could be muddy. We really would advise waterproof boots & gaiters.

There are stiles on this route. Some stiles can be avoided by using gates, but there are 4 which cannot. These are sturdy, good condition stone stiles. 

The views on this walk will be great of the undulating countryside & up to Pendle Hill. We'll even be walking along a short section of Roman Road that linked Ribchester to York.

There is a village pub (The Assheton Arms) to round off the walk. Please bring shoes to change in to for the pub visit - we don't want to be on the wrong side of his Lordship with our muddy boots.

We'd strongly suggest that you travel into Downham via Chatburn, as this is the best road. Don't follow your sat nav on this occasion. We know better!
