|Our next walks from the Winter Programme 2015/16:
Saturday 28th November 2015
Our next walks from the winter programme will be on a half day, finishing at Knott-End-on-Sea on Saturday 28th November 2015.
The ‘A’ walk will be led by Grace Green and will start from the sea front car park on the Wyre Way. After crossing the golf course we head towards Hackensall Hall and then follow the Wyre Way along the estuary. At Banks Farm we go through the small hamlet of Staynall to Highgate Lane where we pick up the field path to Stalmine. From Hill Gate Lane we take the path to Quick Wood, through the campsite to Burned House Lane and Green Lane to the outskirts of Preesall. We then pick up the path to Fern Breck Cottages and Townfoot. From here we follow field paths and bridleways back into Knott End. Approx 8 miles.
The "B" walk will be led by John and Linda Mountford and is a circular walk from Knott End on Sea starting at the ferry point to Fleetwood and walking in a southerly direction on the Wyre Way, passing through the golf course grounds and Hackensall Hall onto Whinny and Meadow Lane before crossing Sandy Lane and around Willow Grove Park into fields to Muffy’s Platt and Carr House farms, eventually passing by Beech House before turning northwards via the Old Ridge to Fluke Lane to the Lancashire Coastal Route. We follow this lovely coastal route leading to the promenade and back into from Knott End on Sea. 8 miles and 66ft of ascent.
The ’C’ walk will be led by Brian Townson - details later.

What a brilliant holiday we had in Majorca. The weather was hot and sunny for the whole week and we enjoyed lots of good walking, sightseeing and swimming and sunbathing round the pool.
Thanks to our leaders for our excellent walks and a big thank you to Graham for arranging our walks programme.
We all had such a good time that we're hoping to go again next year, so watch this space!
