DAY 12 – 13th July 2022
Chipping to Preston – 24.5 miles
Stages 26 to 28 (C10 to C12) to finish the Central Loop. Three Loops now completed with just the Southern Loop left!
I took a short cut after coming off Longridge Fell and missed out the section along the Hodder River including Cromwells bridge. This saved around 3 miles. No Tolkein Trail for me today!
There are two shops in Chipping to pick up provisions for the day. Hurst Green has a tea shop. In Ribchester there is sandwich shop which is just 300m further on the main road as the Lancashire Way comes off the main road just after the Ribchester Arms.
I stayed at the Legacy International Hotel in Preston. There are various places to stay and eat in Preston.
