Our next walks will be on a half day, finishing at Rivington on Saturday 19th July 2014.
The ‘A’ walk will be led by Grace Green and will be a circular from Rivington, starting from the village centre we will head towards Rivington Hall Barn and then follow paths through the woods and gardens to meet the main path that leads to Rivington Pike. We descend from the Pike towards Brown Hill and Pike Cottages before taking the path up and around Wilder's Moor, then down Adam Hill to Moncliffe Stone Quarries. After a short road walk we follow the path through Wilderswood to Jepson's Bridge and then the footpath alongside Lower Rivington Reservoir back to Rivington. Approx 8 miles and 1200 ft of ascent.
The 'B' party will be led by Norma Nicholls and is a circular starting from the bridge at Harrow Lane, taking the path following Upper Rivington and Anglezarke reservoir before turning to White House and up to Grey Heights Wood and crossing over the water before climbing to Manor House, Jepsons Farm and down to Alance Bridge, Dean Wood and returning to the Rivington. 7miles.
The 'C' walk will be led by Amanda Birnie and starts from the Country Park Centre, walking to Rivington Hall and following paths down to the Castle through to Horrobin Lane and Tarrow Reservoir before crossing over the Upper Reservoir and following the path down the side to the Bowling Green Hotel. 4 miles.

4th- 6th April 2014
We had a lovely time in Criccieth, although the weather wasn't very kind to us and caused difficulty on some of our walks.
However the food and entertainment at the George Hotel was good and our meal on our way home was excellent.
I'll put the photos on the website as soon as I can, although there won't be so many due to the poor weather conditions.
13th- 17th April 2015
As 2015 is our 50th Anniversary, we are planning lots of special events, including an extended 5 day holiday to Torquay (Monday to Friday), staying at the hotel Regina.
