Transport Links

Travel Planning system on Red Planet Travel.

This is a better system than Transport Direct as it includes flights, ferries and walking directions, on top of the public transport information that the Transport Direct site used to offer. This means it works from anywhere in the world.

By Bike

Being a smallish village, there is not much cycling space within Parbold itself, and the roads are pretty narrow. However we do get many cycle parties flying through on evenings and weekends, especially in the spring and summer. Obviously the success of Bradley Wiggins, who is often seen cycling around the area has grown the passion for cycling and we are seeing more enthusiasts around the village. You can find local cycle routes of nearby areas here. Cycling in West Lancashire
