Hodder Way


43 km / 27 miles
The Hodder Way is a 27-mile route from the river's source on Access Land near the Cross of Greet to Hodder Foot, where it joins the River Ribble.

From the boggy ground near the head on moorland, it passes through the attractive villages of Slaidburn, Newton, Dunsop Bridge, Whitewell, Bashall Eaves and Great Mitton.

The booklet is presented as a series of eight loop walks with a spine route following as close as possible to the river's course. The final circular walk visits Stonyhurst with its famous public school.
