Adlington Circular Walk

Adlington Circular Walk is approximately 9km in length,, passing through varied scenery in Adlington, Heath Charnock and Anderton. The walk was refurbished in 2006/7, and upgraded with new gates and way-markers.  The project was financed by the Banks Foundation, Lancashire County Council, Chorley Council, Adlington Town Council, and Anderton and Heath Charnock Parish Councils.

The complete walk takes you from the towpath of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal (see photo on left), to the foot of the West Pennine Moors, across country through Huyton Fields and the bank of the River Douglas. Some of this scenery has not changed for centuries.

Copies of a leaflet with the route of the walk are available from the library on Railway Road, Adlington..

The ‘Friends of the Adlington Circular Walk’ has been established to ensure that the walk is properly maintained.
