Brief Description

We leave the car park and go along the southern shore through Aspull Common to pass the sailing club before swinging north through a pleasant mixture of fields and woods along paths and tracks; we pass Abram and Bickershaw towards Hindley. Here we turn east before swinging south through the old Lancashire coal area with its flashes and slag heaps, now hardly recognisable; we pass along Fir Tree Flash, now a haven for wild ducks, in order to reach the canal; we cross over the bridge to regain the country park and car park.
