Walk: Marles Wood, River Ribble, Dinckley Bridge, Ribble Way, Haugh Wood, Ribchester Bridge, Ribchester Road
Start Point: Marles Wood car park Grid Reference: SD 675 356
Distance: 4.7 miles Ascent: 305 feet
Time: 1.75 hours
Weather: Sunny and breezy
Comments: Starting out at 8am I had the car park and most of the route all to myself. I was pleased to find that Haugh Wood was clear of the rubbish left after flooding a few years ago.

The footpath through Marles Wood . . .

leads to the River Ribble . . .

and Dinckly Bridge . . .

which replaced the bridge damaged by storm Frank in 2015

Looking downstream from the bridge

The footpath through Haugh Wood is very pleasant . . .

now it has been cleared of all the detritus caused by flooding

The riverside footpath provides good views . . .

of the river and Ribchester Bridge
