The final stages of Ribble Valley Mayor Michael Ranson’s ambitious borough boundary walk take place over the coming weeks.

Councillor Ranson has revived an ancient custom by walking the borough boundaries to raise cash for his chosen charities, Home-Start Ribble Valley and Crossroads Care Ribble Valley. 

He has been ‘beating the bounds’ by walking Ribble Valley’s 85-mile boundary in four to six-mile sections during his mayoral year.

The next section, from Mellor to York village, takes place on Wednesday, 22 April, with the penultimate walk, from York village to Spring Wood, on Wednesday, 29 April, and the grand finale, from Spring Wood to Read, on Wednesday, 13 May.

The last walk will be followed by a celebratory supper in the Stork Hotel, Read.

Residents are invited to join the walks and a reasonable level of fitness and mobility is required to take part, although the 29 April walk is accessible to mobility scooters, pushchairs and wheelchairs.

All walks start at 5pm and further details, including start points, are available at
