Mid-Week Rambles

 
 


 

The mid-week group was formed 29 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. Walking usually starts at 10.30 a.m. Walkers should arrive by 10.15 a.m. to allow time to put on boots and use toilets. 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 6 -8 miles in length. A packed lunch is taken and members usually enjoy tea and cake after the walk. 

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.

The Walk: (Hidden below Pendle)
Following field paths, we head to Worston walking below Worsaw Hill an ancient Roman look out. Next point we head to Little Mearly Hall - Angram Green and Lane Head next to the Barley road. The route is a mixture of green lanes and field paths with the mass of Pendle Hill always prominent - in fact one description of this walk is called ' Hidden Below Pendle Hill '
Once across the Barley road we head to Hollin's Farm, New Close and Hey House Farm. An elevated route and hopefully good views to the Yorkshire Peaks.
The walk does have stiles which around this area cannot be avoided.
After the walk there is a small café, or you can visit the excellent Assheton Arms.
