Ribble Way

The Ribble Way is a 70 mile (117km) footpath following the river and its valley from the sea to its source. The footpath spans the counties of Lancashire and North Yorkshire and is divided into seven sections each approximately ten miles long.

The Ribble Way starts at Longton on the salt marshes of the estuary and passes through this flat estuarine environment to the west of Preston and onto the lush fertile plains between Preston and Clitheroe. The route then traverses the higher ground towards the county border and continues to its source in North Yorkshire.

The Ribble Valley has a fascinating history with evidence of Roman roads, ancient abbeys, 14th century halls and numerous landmarks from the industrial revolution, many of which have been incorporated into the route. The route is fully waymarked with the Ribble way logo making it easy to follow. For addresses of where to stay overnight please see the Ribble Way guide which covers all seven sections including maps, route descriptions and places of interest.

You can find more information about the Ribble Way on the Ribble Way section of the Ramblers Association website.
