The mid-week group was formed 26 years ago and continues to be well supported by its’ regular members
All members of the club are welcome
There is a walk each week which alternates between Tuesdays and Thursdays. Members meet at the starting point of the walk, usually at 10. 30 a.m. The leader chooses the venue for the walk and details are circulated to members by email. Transport is by car, members ‘car sharing’ where possible. Sometimes local transport is used. Walks take place in the Lancashire Hills, South Lakes, Cheshire, Wirral, North Wales and closer to home particularly in winter. Walks are about 7 – 9 miles in length. A packed lunch is taken and members usually enjoy afternoon tea after the walk. The last walk before Christmas is shorter and is followed by a Christmas lunch.
The dates for the walks are coloured pink on the calendar. Details of walks will be on the web site nearer the time.

THE WALK: This is a short easy flat walk with very few stiles. Starting
at the visitor centre we take a leisurely stroll around the grounds of the deer park and have a look at the obelisk. We will have an early lunch in the grounds as I was unable to find any other suitable place. We leave the park after lunch and enter Little Bollington passing the Swan with two Nicks and making our way to the canal towpath. After approx. 2km we leave the towpath and make our way to Oldfield Lane and the golf course. We re-enter the park and make our way back to the visitor centre and café.

In about half a mile turn right at the white signpost to Sabden. Follow this road down into the village. It is quite steep and narrow in places so take care.
After crossing the bridge, the car park is on the left opposite the White Hart Inn.
We shall follow tracks and field paths via Dean Farm, Drivers, Lower Houses to Higher Town, then follow the minor road for about half a mile to Sabden Fold. Returning via Ratten Clough and New York back to Sabden.
This is an undulating walk with lovely views.
Tea, coffee and drinks will be at the Pendle Witch – no cake!
