Forest of Bowland

So much of the charm of the Forest of Bowland is the peace and tranquility of the walks, I spent many hours not seeing a soul whilst out walking the area; unusual unless I am on one of the more remote hills of the Dales or Lakes. Sandwiched between the Yorkshire Dales and the M6 the Forest of Bowland is an undiscovered gem of rounded hills, lovely river valleys, forestry and pretty villages, it is also easy to get to Walks up Pendle Hill, through Gisburn Forest, up in to the Tough of Bowland and along the River Ribble are all included.
