Around Hurst Green

Doe Hill
pastures to Hud Lee Wood

Walk Overview:

This circular walk visits Doe Hill before linking various farms and manors around the beautiful village of Hurst Green, it seeks out the locations used to sustain the underlying 18th and 19th century economy in this Lancashire village, namely the four bobbin mills as well as several farms.

The walk through Hud Lee Wood is just wonderful as we emerge into a Lancashire landscape that owes its beauty to the rolling hills and ancient woodlands surrounding us.

We return past the old deer hunting lodge of Greengore before strolling through idyllic woodland alongside the stream of Dean Brook before reaching Hurst Green.
