Route 685 connects Burnley, Padiham and the surrounding villages together, creating links into the town centres, employment areas and schools. The route was designed to be a linear park, providing people with a social space which had a 'village green' atmosphere. Using the track bed of the old Burnley to Padiham railway, the direct link provides a safe, attractive walking and cycling route.
