Sun 29 Sep - Go Ape - Grizedale Forest

Any one wanting to book a place for this tree top adventure,please can I have your full amount of £30, to me by Wednesday 18th September, so that I can book our slot, as the total must be paid on booking.
I am thinking to go for around mid day, depending what spaces are available next week when I confirm booking.
Obviously every one is responsible for their own safety on the day.

Having seen the weather forecast, and the really bad wind and rain heading our way, I think it is wise to cancel tomorrow walk as I don't feel comfortable leading it in those conditions. Thank you. Peter

Sun 1 Sep - Lancaster -"Blackberries and Cake"

Lancaster - Galgate - Conder Green - Lancaster

There are likely to be blackberries along the old railway-line part to this walk. If you would like to pick some please bring suitable bags/tins etc. Also there will be two coffee and cake opportunities on the walk, but please feel free to bring your own lunch etc if you would prefer to do that.

Start: 10:15am /GR:475601 /NHS property - please park in the very top car park up Pathfinders Drive.

This walk is flat but quite long along picturesque Lancaster Canal to Galgate where we can stop for a brew if needed. From there we head west, still along the canal to Condor Green where there is 'an array of bird-life', taking us to cafe number two where there will be cake. Tired feet can take the bus from here back to the car park (the bus leaves outside the pub 'The Stork' every 2 hours which will take you straight to the car park.),%2089%20%28Fylde%20Coast%29.pdf For those who like their crumble, the hopefully blackberry-lined old railway line will take us along the beautiful sands by the river. Turning right through Stodday along hedged country lanes, we will eventually come to the road which will lead us back to the car park.

This walk could be done in reverse if preferred.

Distance: About 10 miles
