Getting There

Note: As of November, 2020, users have reported that The Three Fishes is closed. For now, a better starting point is at Aspinal Arms. A circular pub walk from The Three Fishes in Great Mitton, Lancashire. The Three Fishes is a welcoming country inn with plenty of character, the ideal spot for a bite to eat before or after your walk. The walking route introduces you to the heart of the Ribble Valley with superb views of Pendle Hill and a gentle riverside stroll. The walk has only steady gradients with nothing too steep. It follows footpaths through farms, fields and riverside meadows, some of which can be quite muddy. There is one stretch of road walking so take care of traffic at this point. You will need to negotiate kissing gates, footbridges and several stiles. You may be sharing some of the fields with cattle and sheep. Allow 2.5 hours.

The village of Great Mitton is located about 3 miles south-west of Clitheroe. The walk starts and finishes from The Three Fishes pub, on the main B6246. If you are coming by public transport, there are bus stops in the village. If you are coming by car, the pub has its own large car park. Approximate post code BB7 9PQ.

Extremely muddy, however we didn’t choose the best day weather wise for it! Three fishes is closed so it’s better to start from Aspinal Arms. There were 3 wild peacocks spotted by the clitheroe tip!

Really great walk, one of my favourites I have done. Mostly footpath, field walking, especially if you turn right along footpath to river then onto bridge instead of taking the road to the bridge. Great for a dog as hardly any road. Loved it, would definitely do again

First to Review

Mostly walking through farmers fields and on roads but the half a mile down the river Ribble is nice. The three fishes is closed so park at the Aspinall Arms and end on a really nice lunch there. Better walk would be to follow the path in reverse starting at the Aspinall Arms up to the caravan site where there is a park and benches and nice view over the River Ribble. then head back down the same path and cross over the road to mitton hall and go down the side and back to enjoy the view of the hills. Lunch or dinner at mitton hall is also 10/10
