GOOD walking weather this week saw a total of 54 ramblers covering 25 miles on three very different


The first, on Wednesday, November 3, was a glorious 11-mile walk for 28 ramblers in the beautiful rolling Yorkshire countrysid­e around Gargrave.

Autumn colours were all around, and there were lovely reflection­s on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal.

Then on Saturday, November 6, 16 walkers had a surprising­ly scenic two-hour walk from Waterfoot, including the railway tunnels and the ‘Stone Man’ statue.

Lunch was taken in the not-for-profit Old Library Café.

Finally, on Sunday, November 7, 10 ramblers turned out for a 10-mile agricultur­al amble in the Hoghton area, near Preston.

This leader is not fond of canal walking, so although the aforementi­oned canal was often seen, it was never followed!

Coming up, on Wednesday, November 17, we have an 11-mile walk from Clitheroe, which will take in the gentle countrysid­e of the lovely Ribble Valley, including Bradford Bridge, Saddle Bridge, and Bashall Hall. All are welcome.

These walks are free, but after three walks with us we ask you to join The Ramblers, at a cost of only £3.05 per month.
