This walk explores the scenic river landscapes around Dinckley and Hacking where the rivers Ribble and Calder meet. Alfred Wainwright rambled in this area as a young man working at Blackburn Town Hall and returned here at the end of the 1970’s to take photos for sketches he would use in A Ribble Valley Sketchbook. The walk will link many of the places he sketched along this stretch of the Ribble and Calder, including Elizabethan Hacking Hall and its old ferry crossing, St Leonard’s Church at Old Langho and the site of the new bridge crossing at Dinckley. A must for Wainwright fans!
