About this walk
Spring Wood is located just a short distance to the east of Whalley, on the A671 at the junction with Accrington Road. The woods sit at the bottom end of Pendleton Moor, Pendle Hill. A meander around the woods and up the hill can take between 30 ins to an hour. It can get muddy so take care underfoot. The car park currently costs £1 for short stay and disabled parking is free. There are also toilets in the car park.From the car park there are basically three paths up the hill and they all meet up at the top. The small summit at about 120m is easy to reach and there is a bench offering views of Longridge Fell and the further fells of the Forest of Bowland, looking down on Whiswell. In the centre there is a small pond and waterfall. Spring Woods is well known for the bluebell carpets in spring. To extend your walk you could take the path to the right over the golf course and up towards Pendle Hill - or turn under the A671 towards the centre of Whalley where there is more good dog walking around the Abbey and along the banks of the River Calder. Plenty of excellent watering holes in Whalley.
