Ribble Way

72 miles. 115 km.

The Ribble Way is named after River Ribble, from its source in the Yorkshire Dales to its estuary on the West Coast, Northwest of Manchester. The trail more or less follows the river, and runs flat most of the time, passing through many villages, gradually changing in remote hill country untill reaching the source of River Ribble at Jam Syke.

The route passes through a variety of landscapes including tidal marsh, open moorland and limestone gorges.

So it's up to you to make the choice: starting in heaven and walking down to busy daily life in the valley, or rather experience a slow kick off from your own daily business by walking out of it to heaven.
