A peaceful and relaxing place for walking, running or cycling. Great place to see the steam train (when operating) on weekends if you find right spot to view (seen Father Christmas several times!). However, if you plan to access the path (called The Guild Wheel)...More

This is a great river plenty of fish in it and the odd dead sheep, very full last time I saw it. Sometimes there is less water in it but it's not a good river for swimming

A great place for a walk on a nice day. You could start down by the Capitol centre and walk round to Penwortham on either side of the river. Try the cafe at Avenham park on the way round....

Many years ago I walked the Ribble Way from sea to source. The Ribble has such a varied range of views along its length as it comes down from the Pennines. There is plenty to explore and lots of different choices of walks.
