Bowland Explorer 2018

The Bowland Explorer is a summer Sundays combined rail and bus journey across the Forest of Bowland AONB via Bentham & Clitheroe.

The 2018 Bowland Explorer starts on Sunday 27th May and runs each Sunday until 30th September.

The Bowland Explorer takes on two routes through the Forest of Bowland AONB with spectacular scenery all the way. Enjoy a walk on the wild side at Gisburn Forest, go fishing at Stocks reservoir or relax over Sunday lunch at one of the welcoming village hostelries or cafes. There is also the opportunity to visit the Yorkshire Dales by taking the service to Clapham and Ingleton.

The editor can thoroughly recommend the walk around Stocks Reservoir which takes about 2hrs & 45 mins.
