Monday 1st February 2021

Walk: Lower College Farm, Ox Hey, Ribchester, Ashmoor House, Pinfold, Elm House
Start Point: Home Grid Reference: SD 614 373
Distance: 7.1 miles Ascent: 360 feet
Time: 2.75 hours
Weather: Sunny and mild
Comments: As the weather had been very cold in the previous few days I was hoping that the ground would be frozen. There were some muddy sections but the fields weren't too bad to walk across. A pleasure to get out over fields and find some new footpaths.

St Wilfred's Church, Ribchester

A Roman Fort was set up in Ribchester . . .

to guard the crossing point of the River Ribble . . .

and the remains of the granaries . . .

can be found near the church

River Ribble

A child's playground . . .

or a fort guarded by a Roman soldier?
