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.

The Burscough Loop
Thursday 18th August 2022
Leaders: Alan Humphries and Gordon Thomas
Tel: 0151 924 9851
Distance: 6.5 miles
Grid Ref: 444 123
Map: Explorer 285
How to get there: From Maghull take the A59 past Ormskirk to Burscough Bridge. There is limited parking at the station or in the streets nearby.
Leaving by a gate on the Northern Platform we follow a path running parallel to the railway to reach Crabtree Lane. After a few yards of road walking we turn left past Monks Farm to head towards Martin Mere Wetlands Centre. We then follow the Reed Bed Walk round the Southern edge of the reserve.
Turning south we cross the railway line and then follow signs for the Bank Farm Shop passing some new fisheries. A quiet lane leads us to Gregsons Bridge and the Leeds Liverpool Canal. An easy couple of miles along the towpath take us back to Burscough Bridge where there is a choice of tea shops or pubs.
There are some very attractive canal side cottages along this final section.
Easy flat walking with just one stile.
