This is an easy walk initially over sheep pasture and
then along a country lane to the Dog & Partridge.
The homeward track is again over sheep pasture.
Views are of Parlick and Wolf Fell to the north and Longridge Fell to the south.
The walk starts from the free car park in the centre of Chipping
Walk along the main street in Chipping to the fork in the road. The FP starts at 'Quite Lane' following a general straight line (bearing 250º ) over sheep pasture and a series of stiles. The path follows the hedge initially on the left. After 100 yd the path continues over the first stile with the hedge now on the right. After the third stile the path climbs gently across the field. After the final stile again the path follows the line of the hedge now on the left to emerge at Black House Lane close to Abbot Barn. (25 min)
Turn left at the lane and continue to the main road. Turn right and then left into Cutler Lane and so on to the main road. Turn left for the Dog & Partridge. (25 min)
Walk back along the main road for about 100 yd. The FP starts at a stone stile between two houses (bearing 30º ). Shortly after the first stile look for the second stile on the right. Follow the hedge on the left to the FB over the beck. Do not go over the next (fairly new) stile but turn sharp right to meet the road. (25 min)
The path continues across the road to the left. Go over the stile and keep to the left of the house seen ahead. At the farm track turn left for 20 yd; continue straight on over the stile following the hedge on the left. Look for the next stile on the left and follow the bridle waymarkers around Dobson's Hall to the footbridge over the beck and then on the Pale Farm. (25 min)
Go through the gate into the courtyard and over the stile found to the left of the house. Follow the line of the old hedge on the right over a series of stiles to the stone bridge at Town End. Continue up the road to Chipping centre. (20 min)
