pub walk

A circular pub walk from the Aspinall Arms in Little Mitton, Lancashire. The Aspinall Arms is a coaching inn believed to date from the 17th century and offers lovely views over the river, the perfect lunch stop before or after your walk. The walking route takes in the glorious Ribble Valley following a mixture of riverside paths, grazing pastures, ancient lanes and wild moorland with excellent views throughout. There are several steady climbs and descents throughout. The paths are a mixture of pavements, stone tracks and grass paths across pastures, the latter of which can be very muddy after rain so good boots are a must. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates and four stiles. Some of the kissing gates are quite tight (be prepared to breath in!) and the stiles are quite enclosed (small/medium dogs should be able to squeeze through the gaps but larger dogs may need a lift over). You will be sharing some of the pastures with cattle and/or sheep so take care with dogs. Approximate time 1.5 hours.

Pub was nice but walk was a bit boring - probably 2.5 miles rather than 3 miles - not as muddy as the other comments but lots of spoils around.
