Midge Walkers


Hi Everyone

As you are aware our next outing is scheduled for the 4th June 2023, we will set off from Riley Green at 1 45pm. We have done this walk before (16.08.15. No 81 on the website) and it is really good one with some spectacular views and sights so bring your binoculars.

The walk: Leeds/Liverpool Canal, Sun/Moon/Star/Equator, Hawthorn Cottage, River Darwen, The Weir, Hoghton Viaduct, Hoghton Bottoms, Counting House, Old Methodist Church, Hoghton Tower Boundary (fantastic views), Royal Oak and return. 5miles of paths and field walking, 4 (dead easy) stiles. I love this walk.

To get there: The M65 towards Burnley, exit at jct 3, then first exit onto A675 (follow sign for Hoghton Tower & Walton-le-Dale), pass on your right the entrance to Canal Cruises, over the canal bridge and when the double yellow lines finish park on the roadside and then walk back to the start point the Canal Bridge. PR5 0SP will get you to the Canal Cruise point but you cannot park there, it used to be the site of The Boat Yard Inn which has burnt down and is currently a fenced off building site.

Hope to see you there - start 1 45pm.

Kindest Regards

Rodney & Ray
