Help connect White Coppice

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 White Coppice’s Slow Ways.

In fact the OS marked paths don't necessarily exist on the ground at all. Don’t expect views from this route over Healey Nab – just enjoy the woods....

Starting at the picturesque hamlet of White Coppice, the route passes over the Anglezarke Moors and down to Belmont via fairly well-defined paths which are easy to navigate. There’s a quite steep ascent into the hills. It’s a quiet route with quirky points of interest and the views in all directions are stunning, taking in Healey Nab, Darwen Tower and Winter Hill....

The navigation is difficult as many of the footpaths on the hills are not clearly defined (i.e. open fields with tall grass) and so it requires constant checking of the gpx route....

Personally I would go right to the bottom of Spitlers Edge (the slabs crossing the moor) to the 'car bay' and round the road to the style on the left side of Rivington Road, not far at all, as the path through the moor grass from the slabs to the style is not a path!....

Froom Street at the Chorley end was busy with trucks/vans due to the industrial area over the M61 bridge. Many mountain bike trails cross the nab woodland so it can be difficult to navigate through on the designated footpaths. Quiet country lanes take you into the idyllic hamlet of White Coppice....

A very enjoyable route which starts with a short climb up to Heapey (partly on roads) before joining an excellent countryside trail through to the picturesque hamlet of White Coppice. Points of interest include St Barnabas Church, the Chorley-Blackburn railway viaduct (disused) and the Heapey Reservoirs. The massive Heapey Bleach Works are now housing though!...
