Future Destinations

Please note: Details of the walks in November and at Skipton are not shown because it is unlikely they will take place due to strike action on those dates. However, the walk on December 15th at Chorley WILL definitely take place whether there is a strike or not as we feel that almost everybody can reach Chorley by bus or car and we feel it is an opportunity for us all to meet up at the end of a very difficult and disappointing year and renew our fellowship.

SATURDAY 15th December 2018 – Chorley Circular Walk

D WALK – 11/9 miles easy Alight and return Chorley For our pre-Christmas walk we have decided to walk as one group – an opportunity for all our supporters to share a walk together. To-day, we are following the Chorley Circular Walk which visits Astley Park, the Yarrow Country Park, bits of urban Chorley and the Leeds-Liverpool Canal. For those who might not want to cover the full distance there will be an option to shorten the route by a couple of miles. So put some rum in your coffee, bring along some mince pies and enjoy a festive local walk in good company. Leader: Hilary Bell
