It has been a few years now since a major project re-opened up parts of the 19th-century railway viaduct to walkers, if you haven't paid it a visit yet, now is as good a time as any.

Downham is one of those places that is a fantastic starting point to approach Pendle Hill at any time of year, but visiting in early Spring with the crisp air and low sun gives you perfect conditions.

Mawdesley

February 2012 issue

Back in 2012, we headed for the flatlands of West Lancashire. While the area is still very much centred on farming, much of the landscape will have changed in the unsuing period, but the Mawdesley Jubilee Trail is still a delight to experience.
