A-Walking in Lancashire

The Stockton Rambling Club 2012 Autumn Weekend was held on the 12-14th October in West Lancashire. The Best Western Premier Hotel in Leyland was used as our 'base-camp'. From here we travelled to the Scorton area (on Saturday) and the Rivington area (on Sunday). Three circular walks took place (A, B and C) on each of these days.

His 16-mile route took in the following locations: Throstle Nest Farm, Pedder's Wood, Grize Dale, Grizedale Reservoir, Fell End, Breast Moss Hole, Harrisend Fell, Grizedale Fell, Grizedale Head, Catshaw Fell, Stonehead, Wyreside Hall, Dolphinholme, Street Bridge, Foxhouses and Wyresdale Park.
The Sunday A-walk from Rivington Country Park was led by Bill McTimoney. His 13-mile route took in the following locations: Rivington Pike, Crooked Edge Hill, Winter Hill, Hordern Stoops, Redmonds Edge, Great Hill, Wheelton Moor, White Coppice, Anglezarke Reservoir and the Upper- and Lower-Rivington Reservoirs.
