Mid-Week Rambles

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 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.

Dunham Massey and the Cheshire Ring Canal
Thursday September 20th 2018

 

Leader: Philomena McLindon      
Tel: 0151 489 0536
Distance: approx 5 miles
Map: Explorer 276
Sat nav: WA14 4SJ            
Time: 11.00 a.m.
How to get there:
Choose your own route to the M56 towards Manchester.
We took the M6 to Junction 20A, then took the M56, signposted to Manchester Airport. Leave M56 at Junction 7 then keep in the right lane and follow the brown signs to Dunham Massey, going right round the roundabout towards Altrincham on the A56. At the traffic lights, turn left down Charcoal Road (towards the crematorium), B5160.
The entrance to the car park is just over a mile down the road, on the left, clearly sign posted.
Note: The car park opens at 8.00 a.m. The café and shop open at 10.00 a.m.
I suggest you are ready with boots, rucksacks etc. in the car park about 10.45 a.m., then go to the Visitors Centre – there are toilets there.  Could we then be ready to start walking by 11.00 a.m., meeting in the Visitors Centre to the right of the reception desk, no need to wait out in the cold /rain /bright sun.
Car Park: Parking is free for National Trust members, otherwise it is £7 per car.
The Walk:
We do an easy circuit of the deer park before heading over the River Bollin to the canal path.  We follow the canal then come up to Dunham village, then head off across the golf course, finally back into the park. The walk is on good paths and there is a little road walking.
An easy flat walk, two ‘stair-stiles’ and two simple stiles.
Choice of two cafes for tea – the new one is bigger.
(There will probably be time to visit the garden at the end if you want to –free for NT members).
Return to the M56, watching out at the large junction for the Chester/ North Wales sign.

 

 

Burton & Ness
Tuesday 25th September 2018


Leader: Kathleen O'Gorman       
Tel: 0151 489 3435 
Distance: 6 miles
Map: OS 1:25,000 Explorer 266 Wirral & Chester
Grid ref: 3075          
Time: 10.30 a.m.
Meeting Point: Car Park in Ness Gardens (CH64 4AY)
How to get there:  I think most of you will know Ness Gardens.
The most direct way is through the Wallasey tunnel (£1.80 each way) and continue to Exit 4 on M53. Then A5137 through Brimstage to A540 (or through Thornton Hough B5136 also to join A540) Turn left onto A540 & Ness Gardens will be signposted to the right after approx 2 miles. You can approach through Little Neston, turn left at the T-junction with Neston Road and the gardens will be on your right. If you continue to Burton, turn right down Mudhouse Lane, which becomes Neston Road and the gardens will be on your left just after the the village.
Car Park is free but we will go to their cafe after the walk to justify the use of the car park (and can highly recommend their cakes!!)
Toilets available on left down 2 steps beyond shop & cafe.
The Walk: Flat walk – no styles! The walk turns left from Ness Gardens through footpaths to the village of Ness (where Lady Emma Hamilton lived) and down to the Dee Estuary. We continue along the marshes to Denna Hall, with lovely views over the Dee to the Welsh hills. Passing the old Burton station up Station road (the only incline!) we pass St Patrick's well to arrive at the picturesque sandstone village of Burton, incredibly once a busy port trading with Ireland. Going through the village we walk up through Burton woods, diverting to St Nicholas Church, which is well worth a visit. Returning to the woods, we continue along a path towards Haddon wood. We then tell you a funny story before we bear left across the field and back to Haddon lane, and Ness Gardens.
N.B. If anyone would like to do a very short walk, it is very easy to return to Ness Gardens after Denna Hall which would be just 3 miles.
