Conder Green

Walk Leader:       Gaynors first lead walk

Number on walk: 18 members took part

Distance:             11 miles

Weather:             Fine drizzle which cleared later


We commenced from the start accompanied with a little fine drizzle at 10 a.m. The group followed the old disused railway into Glasson Dock and then picked up the Glasson section of the Lancaster Canal. A brief  pause was taken to enjoy the stunning fields and wildlife and an explanation was given to  why the the stone parapets of the bridges in that section of the canal had been removed during WWII. The group continued along the canal to the junction with the main section of the Lancaster canal just outside the village of Galgate. We then proceeded north along the Lancaster canal towards Lancaster until we reached the village of Aldcliffe. Lunch was taken by the old dilapidated house that was once the gate house to Aldcliffe Hall. 


After lunch, with the rain finally ceasing we continued up through the beautiful village of Aldcliffe until we reach the disused railway between Glasson Dock and Lancaster. This path provided some stunning views of the Lune Estuary.


 The loop was 11 miles in total. A great walk was had by all despite the light rain in the earlier part of the walk. A well earned warm by the open fire and rest was taken by the majority of walkers and their dogs at the newly refurbished The Stork at Condor Green.
