A circular pub walk from Haighton Manor near Preston in Lancashire. Haighton Manor is a real gem, ideal for refreshments before or after your walk. The walking route explores the area to the south taking in the bluebell woodland, Fulwood Park Wood, meadows, pastures and quiet lanes that surround the pretty stream, Savick Brook and the historic Haighton House. These paths are not busy thoroughfares and so, if you are lucky, you may well come across deer, hares or kestrels in the meadows on the way round. The walk has just a few gentle slopes, but nothing too steep. The paths are a mixture of quiet tarmac lanes, unmade woodland paths and grass paths across meadows and pastures, meaning some stretches can get muddy at times. The first and last stretch follows the edge of Haighton Green Lane so take care of traffic at this point. You might come across cattle in some of the fields. You will need to cross 14 stiles, most of which are enclosed with wire fencing so dogs will need a lift over. (Two of the enclosed stiles are in a stile-sleeper bridge-stile combination which will make it tricky to carry larger dogs over). Allow 2 hours.
