Description

The baseline FulPre route follows roads through North Preston. The suggested alternative route takes a slightly less direct route (5.75km compared to 5km) but goes through woodland and parkland and uses quieter urban roads. The route is generally paved, with a small section of gravel in Highgate wood. The revised route adds moderate gradient descents and climbs in Highgate wood and also between Lower Bank Road and Moor Park

The route from Fulwood starts along the wide A6 then turns off to head through the pleasant Highgate Wood. This area can apparently flood when there is heavy rainfall. The path emerges into a pleasant suburban area, although a couple of sections of pavement were restricted by overgrown hedges. An off-road lane slopes down to cross a stream, then slopes back up to cross the road into Moor Park, which has some useful facilities. Visit Preston website says “Disabled toilets are available in the Moor Park bowling pavilion.” The route returns to housing streets and passes a very impressive mosque. Crossing the A59 pelican crossing leads you on to Preston Bus Station, a “Marmite” building that I like! The route back to Preston Station takes you past several historic municipal buildings.
I think this route would probably be accessible for good mobility scooters and buggies with the odd bit of judicious road crossing to avoid certain kerbs and overgrown hedges, but I have no personal experience to judge this.
