  • The house to house canal walk (Croston House, Garstang to Vine House, Ribbleton) in its entirety is between 19 and 20 miles in length, ideal for regular walkers or for those wanting to train and fancy a challenge. There will be refreshments stops on route, and sausage butties (vegetarian options will be available) at the end of the walk at Vine House.


The Canal Walk - Group Relay
