A stunning rural ramble exploring the suburban fringes of Blackburn and paying homage to the greatest fellwalker of all. Starting at Pleasington station, we climb up into the Yellow Hills before dropping down to the River Darwen at Hoghton Bottoms to admire the cascades then returning to the start point to catch an afternoon train back into town
Those wishing to use public transport can take the 09.57 train from Preston arriving Pleasington 10.14 or the 09.54 train from Blackburn arriving Pleasington 10.02. The walk will start as soon as the Preston train pulls in.
This walk will be led by Mark Sutcliffe, Editorial Director, Salar Media
Don't forget, you will need to bring some water and an optional packed lunch for a halfway stop. Toilet stop less than an hour into the walk. More information will be sent out in the week before the walk.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, you're fine as you are. We keep track of the attendees and check you off on arrival. However, if you have a confirmation email saved onto your phone, this may be useful on the rare occasion that there are any issues.
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
If you can no longer make it, please be sure to contact us with at least 24 hours notice. We try to be as accommodating as possible and understand that work commitments may pop up. Therefore, if you do need to transfer your ticket to a colleague, please contact us with their full details so we can organise the transfer in good time including the signing of the relevant legal disclaimers.
