The Lancashire Coastal Way

The 137 mile waymarked route extends from Silverdale to Freckleton by way of Knott End and Fleetwood using the ferry to cross the River Wyre. The route follows the Lune and RibbleEstuaries and is ideal for bird watching. Parts of the route are suitable for people with impaired mobility.

The first part of coastal way was opened in September 1991.

I now have details of the route of the Coastal Way and have taken a number of pictures of the path between Freckleton and Lytham. More details to come when I have sorted them out.

The path from Bunker Street to the Boat Yard has been much improved during February 2005. Work is ongoing and should have been completed as far as the Naze by the middle of 2005. Currently the improvements appear to stop at the boat yard (December 2005).
