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.

A circular walk from my house. 34 Brentwood Ave. Crosby.
This is the third road on the left after the club, coming from Thornton towards Crosby village. 34 is at the far end on the right. Parking available on street as most will be at work after 9.00 a.m.
NB. Start time 10.15 prompt, as the mornings walking is longer than the afternoon, and in order to find a lunch stop where we can sit down.
The walk takes us to the old catholic village of Little Crosby, across fields to Hall Road and the Coastguard station. We then go south on the coastal path, by Another Place, past Crosby Baths, and down to Crosby Marina. There is a place for lunch ten minutes past there. After lunch we cross the busy A565 over to the Rimrose Valley country park. Here we can enjoy peace and birdsong in an urban environment but not for much longer. The government have recently given the go ahead for a dual carriageway to be built, to take thundering juggernauts with containers, up and down this green corridor between Switch Island and the docks. We join the canal for half a mile or so then go past Buckley Hill, across playing fields and back through Thornton to Crosby and my house.
I wore trail shoes for the recce, but it was dry for the few days before. There are no stiles. Walking was on paths, grass, tracks and some pavements in urban areas.
NB. You must let me know if you are coming. I have to let the maid know numbers for refreshments after the walk ! Thank you.
