ROSSENDALE RAM­BLERS

Rossendale Free Press - - Club News -

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!

Fur­ther de­tails about our up­com­ing walks can be found in the Lat­est News area of our web­site at www.rossendaler­am­blers.co.uk, or you can con­tact us via sec­re­tary Glyn on 01706 561042, or at glynbr45@gmail.com.
