The mid-week group was formed 27 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, 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.

Map: OL 41
Walk is six and a half miles – undulating with 700 feet of climb. There were 10 stiles. Chatburn was 49 miles from Crosby and took one hour to get there.
Directions: M58 and M6 north to J31, then take the A59 past Clitheroe. After the three left turn signs to Clitheroe, turn left (a brown sign on the right side) to Shackletons garden centre. There is also a small sign on the left, in the foliage, to Chatburn. If you go under a high road bridge then you have gone too far !! At the T junction, turn right, around the garden centre into Chatburn. Go through the village. Just before you leave it, on the left is the library, school and Christ Church. I parked in front of the church, but there were a few places in the library car park. There are toilets there too.
