Lytham Green and Witch Wood Walk

A good after dinner walk for Christmas day! Flat walking on good paths along the Lytham promendade and returning through pleasant woodland. A little road walking.

Park on Fairlawn Road at the St Annes end of Lytham Green. Walk along the promendade path until it joins Ansdell Road South at Granny's Bay. Turn right and inland, past the White Church which is now mainly without the secaffolding which has masked the tower for the past few years.

Cross over Clifton Drive, past the Ambulance Station and cross over the footbridge over the Railway line. Turn right along Oxford Road to its end and then cross over Blackpool Road and enter Witch Wood through the gap in the wall.

Follow the footpath through Witch Wood until you reach Lytham Station. This part of the walk provides some off-lead opportunities but be aware of the railway line which runs next to the wood. The fencing is not particularly robust in places.

When you reach the exit to the wood by the Station, turn right along Ballam Road. Carry straight on down and over Lytham Square to Lytham Green. Walk back to the start either along the promenade or go down the steps for better off-lead opportunities and along the stone track beside the muddy beach.

The dog was joined by two of his friends today. All three enjoyed it!
