Preston Guild Wheel

We tried out the Preston Guild Wheel last week – a 21-mile circular greenway around the outskirts of Preston, starting from Avenham Park (great cafe) just south of the railway station, and taking in, among other sites, the old Preston docks, the River Ribble, a bypass or two, a couple of canals and Brockholes nature reserve (another great cafe).  Mostly on traffic-free routes or quiet lanes, and with just the one big hill in Boilton Wood (hence our decision to go clockwise).  Everything is well signposted and offers a more interesting perspective on Preston if, like me, you only know the bit between the railway station and the listed bus station.  Find out more on Lancashire County Council’s website.  Much of the impetus to create the route came from volunteers . . . is there any lesson for us here?
