Help connect Parbold

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 Parbold’s Slow Ways.

Route is very common route for locals in this area wanting to walk between Burscough and Parbold. Limited on road walking and all of that on quiet roads. Canal predominantly good route though some patches that can get narrow or muddy....

Walk this route

At Top Locks the route takes you across one of the wooden footbridges - while these are fun, there's also a stone bridge for those following an accessible route, but if you take a walk down the Rufford branch towards the Ship Inn, you'll find a variety of ways to cross the locks and overflow channels (and a lovely beer garden if you want some refreshment on a sunny afternoon!)...

Walk this route

Starting from Burscough Junction railway station, pass through the modal filter into Ainscough Drive and Mill Lane. As you cross the canal there are steps down to the towpath but stair free access is available through the Wharf (note that the gates are usually shut at night)....

Burscough—Parbold

Hiking Historian added Burpar two, a new walk from Burscough to Parbold

Walk this route

Route is a great canalside wander through a peaceful countryside stretch. Amenities at both ends of this just over hour-long jaunt. Towpath can be muddy at times, but the route throughout is suitable for foot, bicycles and most wheelchairs....
