General comments about the site

Stretch of former railway line from Mill Lane to Martholme viaduct, planted with broadleaf species by Lancashire County Council following reclamation. A very well used and beautiful walkway and cycletrack through woods.  Potential for opening the viaduct to public access and linking to greenway north- and east-wards into Read and Simonstone (outside borough).

There is an active group that look after the site and further information on them can be found on their Facebook Page
