The River Ribble rises in the wild heights of the Yorkshire Dales and flows for 75 miles through some of the loveliest and most varied scenery that Yorkshire and Lancashire have to offer. This idyllic countryside provides the setting for these 30 delightful circular walks. They have been selected to appeal to all tastes, and range from simple valley strolls to strenuous fell expeditions.

Hand-written and illustrated in Jack Keighley's highly distinctive style, each chapter contains:

  • Parking information
  • A meticulously detailed map
  • Concise route descriptions
  • A general description of the terrain
  • Notes on features of interest.


The walks are fairly uniform in length, an average of 6½ miles, making them half-day rather than full-day excursions.


  • Seasons
    All year round.
  • Centres
    Ribblehead, Horton in Ribblesdale, Settle, Long Preston, Clitheroe, Whalley, Ribchester, Longridge and Lytham.
  • Difficulty
    Walks are all half- to full-days. Nothing hard.
  • Must See
    The source high above Ribblehead, the Dales down to Settle, the gentle land between the Dales and the Forest of Bowland.

August 2005

Walk 16

The path between points 6 and 9 on this walk has been closed. A new version of the route will appear in the spring 2010 reprinting of the guidebook and be posted here as soon as information is available.


Walk 27

Between points 17 and 18 the path no longer runs through the grounds of Oxendale Hall. The route description should now be:

17 Drop to footbridge and climb to stile. Follow path signs around the grounds of Oxendale Hall until reaching the lane.

18 Turn left for a few yards and then R (signpost Roberts House Farm). Follow LH field boundary. Pass between two barns then R along a farm road.
