There are numerous possibilities for walks around the extensive Bolton Abbey Estate. I often walk north along the river, through the woods and past the famous Strid gorge. This time I chose to cross the river and do a circular walk to the south. The bold cross the river on the stepping stones. I opted for the safer footbridge alongside!
The path climbs steeply and affords lovely views of Bolton Priory, through the trees.
The route eventually drops down, following old trackways, through fields and back to the river.
Intermittent showers never lasted too long but made for some interesting cloudscapes.
