Chipping is on the western boundary of the former royal deer-park, enclosed in the 1340’s but falling into disuse in the 16th century. Features necessary for the management of the deer, such as a 10km enclosing boundary (“a pale”), access points and the site of the parker’s lodge can be identified today. The walk complements the talk on Bowland deer-parks held on 27 June and will explore the northern part of the park. The features and history of this outstanding park landscape will be described. Bring a packed lunch. Booking essential. Please contact the AONB office on 01200 448000 or email Free, 5.5 hours, terrain guide 3, approx 7 miles.
