  We are a friendly group for all ages and abilities, organising regular walks around the Lake District and beyond.

            Last Sunday, Phil led a small but very select group on a walk from Ingleton. We were very pleased to meet up again with Harry who was at the start to wave us off.

               After the heavy snow and gales in the area the previous week, it was great to see just how well the ground had recovered and the temperature was also on the warm side, so much so that we stopped for ice creams half way round.    Following a walk along the Westhouse Way towards Masongill, we headed up to the Turbary Road and Tow Scar. Once we came down into Kingsdale we encountered the Sunday trippers doing the Ingleton Waterfalls Walk and made our way back to Ingleton down Oddies Lane

         Our Spring programme of walks is now well underway, and we starting to put together the Summer 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.

  The section of the coastal path around Walney Island has now been defined and agreed. The proposals can be viewed on the Natural England website.

 For Information : The A592 from Newby Bridge will be closed from 2nd January for 13 weeks.

          NEXT WALK        

        John's walk on 25th March takes us up Coniston Old Man.
