The route from Chorley soon enters Astley Park (I think it’s open all the time) which is very picturesque, and has very good facilities and a Hall to visit if you want. It is easy to miss the point where the Slow Way leaves the main park route, but there is a junction with a bin, and you very shortly cross a river on a wooden bridge. You soon leave the woods onto a road then tarmacked alleyway behind the houses.
A short section of main road (with an island to help you cross) leads to some quieter roads, including an easy-to-miss footpath along a fenced-in field-edge. There is a bench just after this at the midpoint of the walk.
A couple of busier roads (with pavements) take you to the next field footpath. It leaves the road from the non-pavement side and on the outside of a bend, so it is very difficult to cross. However, there are traffic lights to restrict the flow under the narrow railway bridge, and this helps the lowly pedestrian!
The footpath leads to a farm bridge over the M6. The OS public footpath and the Slow Way route are slightly inaccurate here but on the ground the route is obvious. I was soon passing Runshaw College, at the end of the academic day, so it was very busy, but fine nonetheless.
The second park on this route is Worden Park. There are good facilities here too, but be aware that the park is locked at sunset, as detailed on https://www.southribble.gov.uk/wordenpark
A couple more roads take you into Leyland and on to the end point of the route.
