Walk: Longridge Circular
Start Point: Longridge Golf Club Car Park Grid Reference: SD 625 390
Distance: 7.7 miles Ascent: 900 feet
Time: 5 hours
Weather: A dry day, no real sunshine.

16 walkers set out from the Longridge Golf Club Car Park along Forty Acre Lane turning left at Myers Farm to cross the Golf Course and into woodland. A steep decent took us down to Dale House and on to Arbour Farm where we turned right and completed roadside walking to Higher Chipping House where we stopped for a coffee break. Eventually we turned left at Crowtrees Farm and made our way down to Black Moss Farm. A clear footpath took us on to pass Ferrari’s Hotel and Restaurant and out onto roadway where we turned right and along for 500yds then turned left onto Lords Lane. This took us back to join the Forty Acres lane at the Reservoirs where we turned left and followed the road back to the Golf Club, a quick change and we were ready to start the Christmas Lunch in the Clubhouse.
