Another blog post, another local walk. This one is from the picture perfect village of Downham, where in fact many years ago, I went to primary school. The hike is a 4 mile circular route and was a very peaceful one, we saw only one other person out walking until we arrived back in the village at the end for an ice cream. 😊
We set off from the large car park in Downham, following the brook down through the village. You may recognize Downham from the TV series Born and Bred which was filmed here.
We ended our walk at the little ice cream shop on Hare Green, which also sells brews, cakes and sandwiches.

Lovely pics and a nice looking walk. I’ve been binge watching The A Word on the BBC and would love to be in the north of England at this point… (though part of it is just desperation for a change of scenery).
I bet you can’t wait to travel. Haven’t watched the new series, I will have to add it to my list. I quite liked Christopher Eccleston’s character. X
Another lovely walk x
Thanks Christine. X
I think Wallace and Gromit would call that “a grand day out!”. I hope Hugo enjoyed his ice cream!
Hugo loves ice cream. He loves everything to be honest. A very greedy Labrador. 🙂
A fine walk although I can’t be the only one to read it initially as Downton and Wiston. I then read the tv bit (about Born and Bred) and did a double take!!
Haha well yes Downham is quite a famous village. It was also the film location of much of Whistle Down the Wind. Twiston is just a hamlet really, but I like the name. 🙂
Thank you for taking us on another lovely walk. I’ve just caught up on your last post too. Gee, you did a bit of memory jogging for me & it must have been a long time ago, but do remember the Born & Bred series. Loved the photo of the tree obscuring Pendle Hill…it’s well placed for photography(giggle). Take care, stay safe & huggles.
Thanks Susan, yes I liked that tree photo opportunity too. 🙂
Visits to Downham won’t be the same if the pub closes.
The Derby Arms down the road from me is part of the same group and under administration. I think they were struggling before lockdown but that obviously has been the last straw.
I know, it’s really sad. 😦
I envy Hugo cooling off in that stream. Especially in today’s heat!
Yes, the dip was very welcome I think. He also had one in a cows drinking trough. 😅
What a perfect village – and another trip down memory lane for you! Where next?
Haha, indeed! Hopefully back up to our caravan in Cumbria in July so maybe some Eden valley outings, but hopefully a few more local to me walks too in good old Lancs.
Another lovely walk!
Such a cute little school. You and how many others?
I think there was about 22 of us in school when it eventually closed. There were six in my class and two in my sisters. 😊
An ice cream shop is always the best place to end a walk, isn’t it?
I think so. ❤️
It looks like a lovely walk.
Lovely village, Downham. (Whisle down the Wind country). Pity to hear about the Assheton Arms.
I know, hopefully someone will jump in and save it. It’s always been a popular pub.
Fingers crossed 🤞
