Mid-Week Rambles






The mid-week group was formed 25 years ago and continues to be well supported by its’ regular members. All members of the club are welcome on the walks.

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.

Further information can be obtained from the Weekday Ramble Chairman, Tel: 0151 426 3050.

Leader: Betty Jones       
Tel: 0151 924 7506
Distance: 6.5 miles 
Map: Explorer 287
Grid ref: 628128            
Time: 10.30 a.m. 
DIRECTIONS: From M6 junction 27 drive east through Standish. Carry straight on through traffic lights on to B5239. Go

under the railway bridge and turn right at the first mini roundabout and left at the second still on B5239. After crossing

the canal continue for 1.5 miles to a junction where you leave B5239 as it swings sharp right. A mile further on, this

road also swings sharp right as it approaches Blackrod but, you turn left onto Dark Lane. Continue along this road as it

crosses A6, goes over a narrow bridge, under the M61 and across A673. Just after at a road junction turn left and continue

along this road for almost a mile to the first road on the right. Turn right here (Horrobin Lane) and continue along this

road as it swings right in Rivington Village and approximately half a mile after the village you reach Great House Barn

with café and toilets. Turn right and park in the car park behind the barn.
THE WALK: In view of all the mud which we have encountered recently I have decided to do a short and easy walk starting

off along Yarrow reservoir and taking the path up to Jepson’s farm before emerging onto Moor Road. There is now  a short

walk along Moor Road until we reach Anglezarke Reservoir. At the end of the reservoir we continue along The Street and

return to Rivington for refreshments.

Cedar Farm Galleries, Mawdesley, L40 3SY
Thursday, 5th April 2018

Leader: Doreen Hunter   
Tel: 0151 924 5183
Distance: 7 miles
Grid Ref: 494140
Map: OS Expl.285 Southport & Chorley 
Time: 10.30 a.m. at Cedar Farm Galleries
How to get there:  Take the A59 towards Ormskirk and after passing Ormskirk and Burscough continue until you reach the

Hesketh Arms on your left, almost immediately turn right on to the B5246 signposted Parbold Station, Mawdsley and brown

sign for Cedar Farm.  Follow the B5246 for about mile until you see signpost to Mawdsley. Turn left and continue to cross

roads, go straight across and turn right at the T junction.  Cedar Farm is a short distance along on your left.  There is

ample parking space and toilets.
The Walk:
This is a circular walk through interesting and varied countryside from the open expanses of the Douglas Valley to the

leafy lanes of Mawsdeley, using local lanes, tracks, footpaths and the canal towpath.  There is one rough farm access

track where sticks would be useful.  At the time of the recce some of the fields were wet but, strangely, there was not a

great deal of mud.  There was one interesting swinging (literally) footbridge, which can only be crossed two at a time. 

Near to the end of the walk there are several stiles, all of which have been upgraded.
At Cedar Farm Galleries you will be able to have refreshments and browse around the varied craft shops.
