The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Dobbies Garden Centre

Blackpool Rd, Clifton PR4 0XL, UK – 01772 683844

Great garden centre if a little pricey. Would be nice to see the fresh food dept developed. It seems to be tucked away in a corner and with not much choice. Same for the meats. It just seems half done and not up to the standard of the other areas. Lovely cafe and Christmas store. Recommend a visit.

Lovely display of all things Christmas. Cafe was well run and excellent food and drinks. The staff were working very hard and it showed. So 5* given.

WalkingWorld.jpg
Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the country. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks..

Camping and Caravaning

Preston Caravans and Motorhomes

Blackpool Rd, Preston PR4 0XL, UK – 01772 685949

Recently traded in a caravan for a much newer one. We were delighted with the process from beginning to end . A good no quibble trade in value and a very reasonable price for the replacement van. The professionalism of the staff is exemplary and the degree of concern for your satisfaction is almost over and above the call of duty. We would have no hesitation in recommending Preston Caravans and we will give them all of our business in future. Many thanks to Phil who was superb and a credit to the company and congratulations to the firm for providing such a very high standard of customer care.

Copy of the review sent by e-mail from Mark and Terri Thomas We bought our caravan from PC&M Having visited the show in October 2016. We dealt with Kim who really helped to choose the right van for us, and gave us a great deal too. There were a few issues with the van when we went to collect it. However Preston caravans have since resolved all of these. It's at this point when you find out how good your dealer is. We've had a really good experience buying through Preston. All of the staff we met in sales, after sales, mechanics, to those in the shop were so helpful and pleasant and couldn't do enough for us. We would certainly buy from Preston Caravans again should we decide to change the van in the future.

Lamaleach Park Estates

My views as a visitor are clean, neat, tidy - as the Germans say "everything in order". Site backs onto BAe's Warton runway so good for plane buffs!

I've lived on Lamaleach Park Estates for 13 years and love it,
