Walk Leader's report from Delamere - Tuesday 20th February [Leader Mike Alldred]
On a fine February morning, 34 enthusiasts set off from the busy Barns Bridge car park to explore the tracks, trails and paths of Delamere Forest Park. Underfoot conditions varied from very good to ...very muddy indeed. After a lunch stop outside the Visitor Centre, we took the gentle slopes up to Pale heights. From there, under bright blue skies, the "seven counties" views were particularly impressive. All in all, a pleasant walk in good company; my thanks to Peter and David for their help and back marking, and to all who attended for their cheerful friendliness.
Warrington Coach Report from Sowerby Bridge - Sunday 18th February [Reporter Sue Richardson]
The Warrington coach set off with 37 Ramblers and quickly arrived at Sowerby Bridge, a new walking area for many of us. Geoff Forman and his combined A and B group alighted first near J22 of the M62 and completed a bracing 14 mile walk across high moorland with a climb of around 1800 feet. Sue Richardson and Dave Treble led the C walk at short notice (illness of leader) on a walk of 10 miles and around 1000 feet starting off at Booth Wood Reservoir and eventually picking up the Calderdale Way across moorland and back along the Calder Hibble Navigation into Sowerby Bridge. The D group was led by George Dale and started off in Rishworth, again picking up the moorland Calderdale Way after walking along the river to Ripponden and then onto Highlee Knowl. The day stayed dry, and there were good moorland views and some interesting post industrial landscapes. There was a lot of mud in places, but many tracks were good and the groups thoroughly enjoyed the walks and exploring the area.Afterwards there was a warm welcome in pubs and cafes in the town. A good day out and thanks to leaders and organisers for making it happen.
