Midge Walkers

Hi Everyone


Our next outing will be Sunday 26th Jan is named 'Bilsborrow Pub Walk' not sure why as we don't see that many pub's, but I assure you it is a great 4mile walk and well worth the effort I think you will really enjoy it. Meet at the cricket pavilion behind Owd Nell's Pub Bilsborrow start 2pm. We take in Lancaster Canal, Brock Aqueduct built 1797, Barton Grange Marina, over West Coast mainline, site of Brock Station, River Brock, Matshead Paper Mill ruins, through a front garden, Bull Brook, pedigree Holstein Freisian cows at 17th century Bilsborrow Hall Farm, picturesque views pf Beacon Fell, Parlick Pike, Fairsnape and Bleasedale Moors, Wesleyan Chapel, 'Pot House' Chapel, St Hilda's Church, Myerscough Hall Drive, Canal tow path and return. You may note no mention of passing a pub!! 4 miles of easy walking with an odd stile here and there, it is a doddle. Don't deny yourself by missing out on this smashing walk.

To get there: Get yourself going north, towards Garstang/Lancaster on the A6, through Broughton and Barton, look for and take left turn to Myerscough College, Owd Nell's is then immediately on you right, go to the rear of the buildings, over a brook to the Pavilion. Post Code PR3 0RS

Hope to see you ready to go at 2 p.m. 26.01.2020

We have a couple of, ‘new, to us,’ shorter walks which I am sure you will find very enjoyable.

From the old Red Rock Station 1869 (Lancashire Union Joint Railway). Arley &     Adlington area.

I have the dates in my new 2020 diary I hope you will do the same.

As you know our group is in it's 10th year of walking together and Ray, John and I have compiled a list of the walks we have done during this time, we thought you might find it interesting to see where and when we did each walk and perhaps suggest a repeat of any of particular interest to you. I hope you, like me, enjoy reading the list and recalling what has been a most enjoyable 10 years of walking and fellowship.

Best Regards,  Keep Smilein’
