Graham & Vicky Cooper 015242 62535 Our first November walk of 7.5 miles on Saturday 3rd starts at Arncliffe,
parking in the village. We leave Arncliffe crossing the River Skirfare and take a track which
winds its way steeply at first, to the ridge on Old Cote Moor Top.
On reaching the top of the ridge there should be good views over the surrounding country.
We then turn left and walk along the ridge to the trig point on Firth Fell.
Walking beyond the Trig point, we pick up the track coming over from Buckden.
Following this track we descend to Litton from where we walk down the River Skirfare
and back to Arncliffe. On Friday 9th we park at Little Town in the Newlands Valley for an 8.5 mile walk up
Cat Bells and High Spy.
Wainwright describes Catbells as "a family fell where grandmothers and infants can climb
the heights", so the grandmothers in our group should be fine!
We follow the path to Skelgill and up to join the main path to climb Cat Bells
and carry on along its ridge across Maiden Moor to High Spy.
Proceeding towards Rigg Head and Dale Head Tarn,
we turn back north and follow the valley route back to Little Town.
Another walk which should have good views. On Tuesday 20th We park on the foreshore at Potts Corner near Middleton for an 8 mile walk. Our route then takes us along the shore round Sunderland Point,
then follows the road to Lades Bridge where we continue to Basil Point.
To return to the cars, we go through Overton then Middleton via Moss Lane,
then past the former Holiday Camp to end up on the shore and back to Potts Corner Car Park. The walk on Sunday 25th goes from Wycoller up onto the fells at Boulsworth in
East Lancashire. We start from the public car park at Wycoller (fee £1 for the whole day)
and head across the fields past Slack Head Farm, Great Hill Farm,
New Laithe Farm and Lodge Moss Farm to the Pennine Bridleway at Boulsworth Dyke.
We turn left here and follow the Pennine Bridleway to Brink End
where we transfer to the Bronte Way into Wycoller where there is a cafe for those who want one.
From there its a short walk back to the car park. Distance 7½ miles. Don't miss our December walk on Saturday 1st.
This is a 6.5 mile circular walk starting at Melling. We go via Tatham Church, Wennington,
then across to Wrayton and walk alongside the Greta back to Melling. All walks leave Lairgill at 9.30am.
