Wetlands and Waterways

One of our newer walks, the Wetlands and Waterways route is a bit more challenging than some of our other walks. The total distance is about 14.5 miles, however, the flyer gives options for shortening it into easier routes that can be completed separately.

Starting at Burscough Bridge railway station the route takes you around some of the flattest land in west Lancashire.  Pretty cottages, nature reserves and quaint waterside pubs are just some of the things you can see along the way.

The route uses field paths, tracks and canal towpaths, many of which are well signposted.

PLEASE NOTE: THE ACCESS TO AND FROM THE WALK VIA BURSCOUGH BRIDGE INTERCHANGE IS CURRENTLY CLOSED UNTIL MAY 18 2018.
