That strange time of year is here..

It’s the time after summer but before¬†Halloween and Christmas. It’s cold outside but still light, it’s the calm before the festive storm. So what should we do with ourselves during this strange time of year?

It’s cold outside (it was 3 degrees this morning in Preston) but it is sunny. In fact stood in the sun with your eyes closed you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s a summers morning. The air is clean and crisp, everyone is calm after a long hot summer and the Christmas madness is yet to begin.

Number one on our list has to be taking a walk. Luckily there are plenty of places in and around Preston to take a very pleasant walk indeed;

Avenham Park.

Located just off Ribblesdale place on the south west corner of Winckley Square. Avenham park is a Victorian grade 2 listed park land, offering large open space with plenty of paths and room to walk. There are the Japanese gardens to explore and a large fountain should you want to make a wish!

Cuerden Valley Park.

Cuerden Valley park is located in Bamber Bridge, on the edge of Preston. This is a truly stunning park with so much to offer. There is fishing on the lake, a small river, a stunning woodland walk, a cafe and the original country manor to enjoy. If you have a dog the park is dog friendly, provided you clean up after your friend of course.

The Guild Wheel.

The Guild Wheel is a famous cycle track but is also a very enjoyable walk. The wheel travels around Preston passing though Broughton to the north, Grange to the East, Penwortham to the south and Ashton to the West.

However…

If you are not the walking type you could always come and stay at No.10 Preston, kick your shoes off, lay back in very comfortable sofa, watch Sky movies, light the fire and relax in The Hunt Apartment..
