Garstang is quite a unique town. It sits on the River Wyre and close to the Forest of Bowland. It was also a stopping ground for those going to London from Scotland. Many folk would stop for the night and let their horses rest or change horses and proceed down to London for business or pleasure. Walking back from Garstang, you get the mile marker letting us know how far it is to Preston. The main thoroughfare, A6 runs parallel with the road pictured. It was the first by-pass built in 1926 to connect the north and the south.
