Planning on visiting the woodland? Here’s some key information to keep in mind.
The postcode to access the woodland is PR3 1UN. This is accessed via Delph Lane in Bleasdale, Forest of Bowland. Please note that there is another Delph Lane located near the M6, so do ensure you have selected the correct one.
Please use the Delph Lane Car Park (sometimes referred to as Delph Quarry Car Park) to access the woodland. This car park is free of charge and can accommodate approximately five vehicles.
Once parked, face towards the road and walk left (up the hill) until you see a wooden ‘public footpath’ sign to your right. Please note that this is a 0.5 mile walk. This will take you into the BCS70 woodland. Traffic is normally light, but please be careful when walking on this road.
After you have entered the woodland, follow the path along and you will see the bench with the dedication to BCS70. If you continue through the gate and the paved road, you will be able to see the scenic views of the Forest of Bowland, which is quite popular with local walkers. See here for a map of the scenic route.

The woodland is difficult to visit without a car as there are no local railway stations. Buses will be able to get you closer, however you will require a taxi to reach the site. If you do utilise a taxi, please give them very specific instructions and check the fare first. Please note, as the area is remote, phone signal may vary but there is no 3G or 4G network coverage so it may be difficult to look up maps on your phone.
There are cafes and pubs in Garstang, a local market town which is a 15 minute drive from the woodland. Please note there are no toilet facilities on site at the woodland.
