Longridge Fell (easy 6 mile circular – May 2010)

<< Walk list

Longridge Fell

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.

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.
