Continue on this lane. Farmer’s Arms is on the right before the canal bridge.

This is a pleasant walk of approx. 5 ½ miles on flat terrain.
The walk takes in canal towpaths, Burscough Village and open countryside around Martin
Mere Wetlands.
We encountered only a few muddy parts but sturdy boots and sticks are recommended as
conditions may deteriorate.
Care must be taken on country lanes near Martin Mere as traffic can be fast moving.
You are responsible for your own safety.

Toilets are available at the Farmer’s Arms and at Brandreth Barn where we will have a
coffee stop.

There will be a lunch stop at the hides near Martin Mere and we will be eating at The
