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.

HESKETH WITH BECCONSALL HERITAGE TRAIL
Friday 28th December 2018

Leader:  Hilary Barton
Tel:  01704 562868
Distance:  about 5 1/2 miles
Map:  Explorer 286
Grid Ref:  447230
Time: 11.00 a.m.
HOW TO GET THERE:
Take Coastal Road to the end at CROSSENS and take the 1st exit Ralph Wife's Lane and stay on this road through BANKS and follow Road as it swings left and then right onto Marsh Road passing Taylors Farm and then Hundred End Farm then onto Shore Road (a continuation of Marsh Road) into HESKETH BANK. Turn right into Station Road and BOOTHS is on the left where we park the cars, close by the West Lancs Light Railway,
THE WALK begins at Booths, Hesketh Bank. We walk down the steps opposite Booths and along what was once the platform for the trains starting at Hesketh ParK, Southport, through to Preston which was axed in the 1960's. Travelling on down Becconsall Lane we come to Becconsall Village Church, unused now for worship but having a small museum for which we have permission to look around (once collecting the key opposite). This is also a good place to have lunch! before skirting the Boatyard on the River Douglas to walk the Embankment with good views over to East Lancashire Longridge and Pendle Hill.
Proceeding inland we walk on good paths and some road walking to reach Poor March Allotments. These were given to the poor in times past but form a leisure area where people can walk around and view the well kept allotments. There are many grassy paths criss-crossing the allotments. Then onwards we take steps uphill (NOT MANY) to the Brow and make our way back to Booths to enjoy refreshments.
