        LATEST NEWS

            Our walk from Nateby was on mainly good paths and tracks.  We walked down one side of the Mallerstang valley to Pendragon Castle where we spent a few minutes inspecting the ruins.  Our way back up the other side of the valley took us past Lammerside Castle and Wharton Hall.  We had good weather and good views across to the 9 Standards.

         The Trespass store in Barrow is offering members of Furness Ramblers 10% discount, including off sale items.  Just show your Ramblers membership card to take advantage of this offer.

         Our Summer programme of walks is now well underway, and we starting to think about the Autumn programme.  Anyone who would like to lead a walk should get in touch with our programme secretary, Jennifer Marshall.

              Note that there are still some new volunteering opportunities  in the areas of Researching Old Footpaths.  For more details see our "Footpaths Section"

         Natural England have announced that work has started on the new Coastal Path Section in our area, stretching from Silecroft to Silverdale.
