A children's playground at Stonelands . . .
but beside this another stone . . .
is believed to be a Roman milestone that has been inverted as the squarish top would be more normal as a base.
Leaving Buckley Wood to find . . .
an orchid . . .
and the muddiest spot of the walk
St Saviours Church, a Grade 1 listed building
Alms Houses with the Roman Catholic Church to the left
The War Memorial commemorates 2 World Wars . . .
and provides further information
The Roman Bath House . . .
where there's lots of information . . .
and a few rock walls
Joining the Ribble Way . . .
before a short detour . . .
to see the information about The Granaries . . .

St Wilfred's Church
There must be a nest nearby as this and another lapwing were flying round and making lots of noise
