Along the Anglo-Saxon Frontier
£4.00 – £7.00
THIS WALK IS CANCELLED DUE TO COVID LOCKDOWN.
Hidden in the hills between the villages of Downham, Twiston and Rimington is the picturesque valley of Ings Beck. The little stream not only formed the pre-1974 county boundary between Lancashire and Yorkshire, for several centuries in the Dark Ages before the 10th Century it was a boundary between two Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms. This walk will cross the ancient frontier on a lovely walk through a patchwork of hedges, fields and woods where Lancashire and the old West Riding meet. The route also includes a section of the Ribchester-York Roman road.
