The Burnley walk starts and finishes in Towneley Park, which adjoins the Town Centre. The park includes Towneley Hall, a well-preserved stately home, started in the 14th century, which is open to visitors. The walk goes through the park into the Town near to Burnley FC’s Turf Moor stadium. The route then joins the towpath of the Leeds -Liverpool Canal before descending into the Town Centre, where there are some fine buildings. The route then returns to Towneley via the Burnley Wood area.
