As you know we have booked next Sunday for a short walk which will start at 1-45pm from the Yarrow Valley Country Park, Car Park outside the Café. Yarrow Valley is a beautiful and historic area which is well worth visiting. We will take in Big Lodge, Top Lodge, The Weir, Dry Bones Colliery Shaft, Yarrow River, Duxbury Woods, Bevis Memorial, Lower Burgh Wood & Meadow, Bleach Works, loads of birds and flora. This a great place for walking, give yourself a treat and join us.
The walk is 5 miles of mainly good under foot walking, with very few stiles and one minor slope. We will have a short drink/snack stop.
To get there, I have copied the directions from the Yarrow Valley web site: Visitor facilities are located off the B5251 (Coppul Rd) on Birkacre Rd and is sign posted on all major road junctions in Chorley Borough. Post Code PR7 3QL. I got there by taking the B5252 at Tesco Euxton, through Common Bank and then right onto the B5251 and down hill to a left into Birkacre Rd, passing Birkacre Garden Centre and into the Yarrow valley Car Park.
