    5. The point of departure from the old railway line footpath, heading to the B6243.

    6. The narrowest section of the route (other than stiles and cycle barriers). This is the point where the off-road section of the route leaves Grimsargh by the side of the Plough Inn. If this section of the route is to be avoided, it is necessary to head east along the B6243 to Longridge at this point 8 km from start — 13 May 2021

    7. One of the numerous step-stiles on the section between Grimsargh and Longridge. The path here drops relatively roughly and steeply from the old railway embankment to access the stile itself. Together with one other similar feature close by, these are the only points on the walk which are other than virtually flat. 8.5 km from start — 13 May 2021
