Lancashire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester: Pub Walks for Motorists

by Nick Burton
£8.99   paperback  Countryside Books (2005)

Lancashire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester: Pub Walks for Motorists by Nick Burton What better way to spend a leisurely few hours than to drive to the countryside, stretch your legs and then visit a good pub for some fine food. The 40 circular routes in this book show how this can be done. Each route, starting and finishing at or near a recommended rub, is between 3 and 8 miles in length, and takes the walker through some of the most beautiful scenery in England.
 
In Lancashire, there are walks starting at Hornby, with panoramic views across the Lune Valley; the market town of Chipping and its 17th-century stone buildings; Foulridge, passing both ends of the historic Mile Tunnel; Hutton, along part of the Ribble Way; and Halsall which crosses the Clieves Hills above the West Lancashire Plain.
 
Routes in Merseyside include Freshfield which features the sandy ebaches along the Sefton Coastal Trail; Garswood, in traditional mining country; Tarbock Green, a rural hamlet and green belt conservation area; and the ancient Saxon township of Cronton.
 
The Greater Manchester northern area offers a wlak from the hilltop village of Blackrod which follows farm lanes and tracks to the Leeds and Liverpool Canal; Norden, where the Rossendale hills are explored; Grains Bar, crossing the infant River Tame; Chorlton village, along pleasant tree-lined avenues; and Ringley, with views of the West Pennine Moors.
