The route leaves Longridge former station along a former railway line to reach a roundabout which was a little bit tricky to cross, but manageable. It follows a residential road along a narrowing pavement to reach a concreted track to Sand Banks Estate. There is a corner-cutting footpath with stiles at either end. There are several businesses at the end, but the motor servicing one makes it difficult to spot the route through. There is one, so persist between the vehicles! A section of country road leads to a field crossing with nice views all around. Another road leads into Goosnargh village which has a welcoming pub and small shops. A private side road takes you to Chingle Hall, reputed to be the most haunted house in the country! It can no longer be visited though, and is privately owned.
The farm lane gate heading south from here was padlocked (I have reported this to the council as it is a Public Right of Way), so I had no qualms in climbing over the gate. I could see where the route crossed a field by an unused footpath, but it was easier to follow the farm track which wiggled around the field edge. After crossing Blundell Brook, the public footpath suddenly veers east to a field boundary containing a narrow bridge and stile. This is almost invisible on the ground, and is unsigned. The paths here are evidently very rarely used! I have marked these three issues in yellow on the map included with my photos. These fields were also very wet and muddy.
After some careful navigation another road is reached. Just south of Dingle Wood there is a clearly marked footpath diversion around some property. This leads down into a pretty sunken footpath, which had an inevitable tiny river running down it. There is a footpath, muddy in places, leading to a narrow bridge into Fulwood Park Wood which is very pretty and accessible. Then a wooded footpath (with snowdrops and wild garlic) leads to Ladyewell Shrine and via another muddy field, to the footbridge over the motorway.
After the wooded footpath away from the motorway, you reach a roundabout. The Slow Way route proceeds along a 150-metre section of road before reaching the cycle track route 6 to head north. However, it is nicer to use a 150-metre cycle track immediately to the south of this. From here it is mostly off-road cycle track, then a section of urban road passing a hospital to reach Fulwood.
This is a mixed, mostly pleasant and rural route, which is a bit let down by some muddy unused field paths with some navigation issues.
