Named discsWyre Way


72 km / 45 miles
A walk exploring the history and wildlife of the Wyre estuary from the estuary mouth as the river snakes to its source in the Forest of Bowland. The Way comprises three routes: from Fleetwood to Knott End via Shard Bridge (16 miles), from Shard Bridge to Garstang (11 miles) and from Garstang to the finish at Abbeystead Reservoir (18 miles). Both sides of the estuary are visited - the ferry between Fleetwood and Knott End is seasonal and the route is subject to flooding at Spring tides.
