A delightful Lancashire walk from Hurst Green over Longridge Fell then by the Hodder and Ribble rivers, where JRR Tolkein got inspiration for the Shire in the Hobbit. We will also see the ancient bridge over which, in 1648, Oliver Cromwell took his 8,000 strong army enroute to the battle of Preston.
