5 best Autumnal Lancashire walks for the whole family

There's nothing quite like the crunch of leaves underfoot during a nice autumnal walk, followed by a cosy hot chocolate (with all the fixings of course).

Here are some of the best walking trails in and around the Preston area for walkers of all ages.


  1. Mitton Hall – Ribble Valley

Follow the paths through the open fields and over old bridges towards Mitton Hall. Soak in some Lancashire history with an idyllic church said to be the first Christian church in the Ribble Valley. Ending your walk at the Aspinall Arms, with a cosy drink by the fire.


2.       Pendle Hill

The site of the notorious 16th Century witch trials, Pendle Hill provides the perfect autumnal (if not a little spooky) walk – but do watch out for those scorned witches as you admire the stunning views across Lancashire.


3.       Beacon Fell

The tall trees and leafy floor give that autumn crunch underfoot. Beacon fell provides multiple trails perfect for the whole family – the kids can find different animals and carved figures along the trail and you can finish your walk at the café with a hot chocolate and slice of cake.


4.       Fairy Glen

This is one of the most secluded and picturesque walks in Lancashire in our opinion. The Glen is filled with woodland trees and bridges across little streams. Fairy Glen brings tranquillity and a cosy feel with densely packed tree and red and orange leaf littered trails.


5.       Tolkein Trail

Tap into the mind of the author of Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit and take a walk through the ground where Tolkien himself lived whilst writing. The trail showcases the observatories and barns nestled into the Stonyhurst College grounds. Live out your Lord of The Ring fantasies with this historical walk.
