Slow Ways linking Clitheroe and Chatburn, Longridge, Sabden, Slaidburn, Whalley

Help connect Clitheroe

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Clitheroe’s Slow Ways.

Walk this route

The first 1.5km are urban pavement walking with a good surface. Beyond Standen Hall a good footpath takes you to a quiet B road before the tricky A59 crossing. A bit of road walking into the pretty village of Pendleton before a footpath heads off across fields to Wymondhouses....

Nice route avoiding roads. Clear footpaths. A bit wet in parts but to be expected given the wet July....

This just allows you to walk one side of a triangle instead of two. Historical features of the walk include the 14th century abbey and grounds in Whalley and the 12th century castle in Clitheroe.....

The route is pleasant (in a walking along a not too busy road sort of way) and it is entirely wheel friendly. The scenery between Whalley and Clitheroe is varied and interesting....

Mr Snail

Walk this route

Walking from Chatburn the start of the footpath is a bit tricky to find as it starts part way along a house driveway, there is a FP sign on a utility pole. You will encounter gates, kissing gates, steps, and one section of uneven stony ground (it looked quite polished so it could be slippy when damp)....

This is a great route with a bit of uphill walking affording spectacular views across the Ribble Valley and Pendle....

Walk this route

This route is a very nice stroll for the most part along the banks of the River Ribble (part of the Ribble Way) and is therefor a well established path popular with dog walkers....

Ian Metcalfe

Walk this route

Between Clitheroe and Hurst Green, this is largely easy-going terrain with no real navigational issues; there are a few gates, stiles and narrow footbridges and the climb from the river up to Hurst Green includes some rough and muddy steps....

Walk this route

Whilst the route is clear, in that it largely follows the main road, there is a significantly lower density of waypoints than is typical, which I do not think is in keeping with most of the other Slow Ways routes....
