THE gloriously colourful October scenery keeps on adding a touch of magic to our walks, so on Wednesday, October 17, 21 ramblers enjoyed a sunny 10 mile walk from Conistone, near Grassington.
This walk showcased all that this lovely area has to offer - rivers, woodland, fields, limestone scars, and lovely views all round.
Then on Sunday, October 21, 16 walkers, including three younger children, had a brilliant 5.5 mile walk from historic Turton Tower, taking in colourful woodland, two reservoirs, some interesting railway bridges and the stocks in Chapeltown, which were very much enjoyed by the children.
These shorter Sunday walks are an excellent way to start walking with us, so please join us for the last one this year on November 18.
Coming up, on Sunday, October 28 we have a 10-mile walk from Bolton-by-Bowland, in the gentle scenery of the Ribble Valley.
There will only be about 260 metres of ascent on this walk, so it would be a good time to try out a full length walk with us.
Finally, on Wednesday, October 31, we are back in Yorkshire for an 11-mile walk in the Bolton Abbey area.
This is a favourite autumn destination for many people, so with a bit of sunshine it should be a fabulous finish to a wonderful month’s walking. See you there!
