Enjoy a lovely riverside walk along the River Ribble on this walk from Eddisford Bridge in Clitheroe. It's a lovely section of the river with nice views of the Ribble Valley countryside and seating to rest your legs by the water.
The walk starts from the Eddisford Road car park on the western edge of Clitheroe. You could also start from Clitheroe train station and head west to the river from there.
From the bridge the you can pick up the Ribble Way long distance trail and follow it south to Great Mitton, via Shuttleworth Farm. Here you cross the river at Mitton Bridge and follow other trails through the countryside back to the river. The route then follows the other side of the river back to the car park.
To extend the walk continue along the river to Hurst Green where you can pick up the Tolkien Trail. The literary trail explores an area connected with the Lord of the Rings trilogy. You could also try our walk aroun Clitheroe which explores the historic castle before heading to the River Ribble and the pretty Cross Hill Nature Reserve.
