This hill reaches 350 m (1,148 ft) and offers decent views of the Forest of Bowland. To one side you can see Bleasdale and the Western Fells – spanning right the way across to Dunsop Valley and the River Hodder. On the other side is the Ribble Valley, with Pendle Hill and Preston to view. On a clear day you can also see the Yorkshire Dales and Lakeland Fells.
Difficulty, distance and time
Easy – moderate walk which ended up being about 6 miles (9.5 km) and took me about three hours.
Parking and amenities
Jeffrey Hill has a little car park, but that is all. However, there is everything you need in nearby Longridge and Chipping is only five minutes away in a car.
How to get there
Elevation and terrain
The highest point of this walk is 350m, and as it starts at about 250m it’s a fairly level walk. The weather was 26c so there was little mud – other than a short part along the mountain bike track.
