CLITHEROE

PARKING-Salthill Quarry ,Lincoln Way, Clitheroe,BB7 1QL

MILES-3 MILES  APPROX 

FACILITIES- NON

TERRAIN- GOOD PATHS THROUGHOUT

EASY WALKING, EDUCATIONAL, FUN

We were told about this area form our local home education group, my girls love fossils, bones so this was perfect.

Recommend taking goggle ( which we forgot, digging tools for the fossils.

The parking area is on the road where the trail starts, it is on a industrial estate which surprised us and a road runs between the two areas that you walk.

Its a nice easy to follow circular walk, we collected lots of fossils that we found in the stones which you are allowed to dig, you are not allowed to dig any large stones or the rock faces.

the walk itself is only short but we spent about 3 hours here digging at the stones to find fossils.
