A pleasant 4 mile circular and level walk along footpaths and country lanes in Lancashire. Little Eccleston is a civil parish on the southern bank of the River Wyre. There are 10 stiles, 3 kissing gates and a few steps up and down to negotiate on the route. Some fields may contain livestock and it may be muddy in places. Allow 1.5 to 2 hours.

Little Eccleston is north of the A586 between Poulton-le-Fylde and Garstang. From Old Blackpool Lane, turn down Cartford Lane and when you see the toll bridge in front of you and The Cartford Inn on the right, park either on the main road or a residential side street. Please ask if you want to use the pub car park. Approximate postcode PR3 0YP.
