Fish & Chip Walks 2019

Fish & Chips Mark 1 Mike & Kate led their traditional fish & Chip walk from Eccleston to Croston. The weather had been wet so there was some discussion over which route to take one way was overgrown, another muddy, but we got to Croston reasonably clean and dry. A pint or two were enjoyed in the…

Lancashire Way Northern Loop

Day 1 of the Third part of the Lancashire Way – the Northern Loop – 21st March 2019 The first day of the Northern Loop had an unfortunate start with traffic chaos in Lancaster, which delayed the arrival of a number of us, including myself as leader. Not the best start but everyone still seemed…

Wainwright's Way Stage 2

  Walk 1 Windermere to Patterdale 29th June We couldn’t have picked a worse day weather wise, as it rained almost all day and with very low cloud and mist there were hardly any views of the Lakeland landscape we were walking through which was a great shame.  We set off from Windermere all…
