Elevation: 138ft

Starting on the Avenue of the stunning Stonyhurst College, where Tolkien himself spent time and wrote parts of the Lord of the Rings. You'll meet a farm track which will bring you to an enchanting woodland. Here you'll descend forest steps and cross an old stone bridge, leading you to the River Hodder.

After a brief road crossing you'll pass the Cromwell Bridge (built in 1562) leading you to the trail along the River Ribble where you'll see a quite breathtaking aquaduct (built in 1880).

Back through woodland, you'll finish in the field behind the Shireburn Arms, having enjoyed the best of what inspired the creation of 'Hobbiton' in the tales.
