Getting There

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.

The hamlet of Haighton Green lies about 3 miles northeast of Preston. Haighton Manor is accessed from Haighton Green Lane, just to the east of the hamlet itself. The pub has its own large car park. Approximate post code PR2 5SQ.

Not much scenery to look at and appreciate, the pathways were fairly muddy.

Beautiful countryside quite a lot of noise from motorway and do get close at some points. Muck spreading in field so quite messy in some areas!

Great walk quite muddy in the fields - walking boots necessary. Need to keep dogs on lead. Saw plenty of deer and they posed for pictures! The hare we saw was huge! Nice quiet walk and a pub at the end.

Really enjoyed this walk, good combination of fields and tracks plus a bit of woodland and really clear directions. Just be aware that, although most of the stiles were fine, we did have to lift our dog over a couple of the stiles at the start of the walk so might be tricky for big dogs. ADMIN RESPONSE: Thanks for leaving a comment and so glad you enjoyed the walk. We give accessibility advice about stiles etc in the introduction paragraphs, so always remember to read this when choosing your walk. This walk's access advice does mention that dogs will need a lift over some of the stiles, so this will be tricky with large dogs.
