Tuesday / Area Coach

The Area coach on the 11th September is to Slaidburn, near Clitheroe and we would be very pleased if you were able to join us on this trip.

Visiting Slaidburn in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is like stepping back in time. Isolated and protected by the surrounding Bowland fells, and largely owned by a single family for almost 200 years, the village has remained un-spoilt by modern development and is virtually unchanged since the early 19th Century. In addition there’s an excellent network of quiet roads around Slaidburn, while walking routes will take you across moorland and alongside the river and reservoir. For peace and solitude, head to the relatively undiscovered fells and valleys.

There will be two walks – exploring the village and the surrounding hills.

To book, or for further details, please text Sheila Sheedy on 07519 810331 or click on the Area (Tuesday) Coach Booking link to send her an e-mail.

We always need leaders , particularly for the shorter walks, so if you can volunteer to lead a walk please do so. We can offer support and help in planning walks.

Future date for your diary The last Tuesday walk of the year is to Prestatyn on 16th October.

About the coach
Welcome to the home of the Area Ramblers coach. We run a coach every four weeks, picking up in Stretton, Stockton Heath and Culcheth travelling far and wide to areas that offer superb scenery and fine walking. Once there, we offer 2 grades of walks, ranging from a leisurely/moderate one of about 6/7 miles duration to a harder moderate walk of 8-9 miles with up to 1500ft of ascent. You will need to bring boots, waterproof clothing (just in case!) and a packed lunch with a drink.
You'll have time for refreshments before we set off back home at 17.00 hours, and you'll even be able to have a sleep on the way back as you won't be doing the driving! We are a friendly,fun and welcoming group and would love it if you could join us. Our full programme is shown below and at the bottom of the page you can see who is leading each of the walks.
To book, or for further details, please text the booking secretary on 07519 810331 or click to send her an e-mail. Note: please do not leave a voicemail message as it costs us to retrieve it.
