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.

SALTERFORTH
THURSDAY 23rd AUGUST 2018


Leader: Brian Bennett
Tel: 0151 931 4313
Time: 10.30 a.m.
Distance: 6 miles
Map: OL 21
Grid ref: 887454
Post Code: BB18 5TT
Directions:
To get to Salterforth, take M58 and M6 north. Turn off on the M65 to the end. Go through Colne and turn left on the A56 –the Skipton road. Go through Foulridge and then turn left at the roundabout in Kelbrook the B6383 towards Barnoldswick.  It is not far to Salterforth, the village before Barnoldswick. In Salterforth look for a brown sign on the left for the Anchor Inn. Turn left at the sign. After 100m, at the car park for the Anchor (which is on the left) turn right into a car park before the Leeds Liverpool canal.
It was 54 miles and 1 hour and 12 minutes from Crosby.
The Walk:
We do a circular walk from the canal to ascend steadily up on to White Moor. Lunch will be sitting on a grassy bank. I took my time and stopped several times for a rest and drink, which I will do on the day. At the top there are panoramic views. After lunch it is mostly downhill!  The walk should have been 7 miles, but I cut it down to 6 as I walked slowly in the morning.  There are some stone stiles, and the walking was varied, canal side, farmland, moorland, lanes, farm tracks and on the Pennine bridleway. Please be ready for a prompt start.
There are toilets 50m from the car park, which is free. There is a primitive café (it was a Bus Shelter and it has been converted into a tiny café) No china crockery, just mugs and a few cakes available!
