Make it The Ribble Way
Ribble Valley is ideal for walking the 'Ribble Way' a way marked, 70-mile route (113km) which follows the course of the River Ribble from its source at Ribblehead to the estuary at Preston; passing through a variety of landscapes including limestone gorge, open moorland and tidal marsh.
Visit Edisford Picnic Site in Clitheroe and you'll see the beautifully commissioned plinth and plaque, which depicts the River Ribble from source to sea.
