Led by Mike. With Eddie, Gordon, Barry, Maureen and me. Excellent afternoon walk. Fine weather actually!
5.4 miles. Around 580 feet of climbing.
We set off from Froom Street and cross the Leeds-Liverpool Canal. I've never seen it so far west before, but greet it like a long-lost friend all the same. A very quiet stretch of water this afternoon.
|I may be wrong, but Mike could be explaining where we're walking tomorrow! Or it could be Blackpool Tower!|
|View over Chorley, with Blackpool Tower in far distance - see below.|
Just past the reservoir, we turn onto a track by Joan Meadow Wood, which takes us north then west to wards White Coppice.
|Down from the heights - I nearly forgot - this is the magical cricket ground?|
|White Coppice village|
Not long until we reach the car and head back, hungry and ready to hit the local Wetherspoons for a meal along with Mike and Jan.
Map and details - ignore the long straight line at the end!
