Walks in the north Pennines not to be missed

Posted by Admin - Mon 26th March 2018 2.35PM

Bolton Ramblers are traveloling by coach to Dufton in the North Pennines on Saturday, April 7th.

Three walks will be on offer; the longest route of 10 miles climbs via Great Rundale Tarn and Maize Beck to one of the outstanding attractions of the Pennine Way - High Cup Nick with, if the weather is kind, its breathtaking views. 

A more moderate walk of 7.5 miles will climb Dufton Pike with its equally stunning views while the shortest walk of 5.5 miles will stay low, enjoying the beautiful countryside in the Dufton area. 

All three walks end back in Dufton where there will be time for refreshments before returning to Bolton.

The coach leaves Chequerbent at 07.45am and Bolton (Lads & Girls Club, Spa Road) at 08.00am and seats cost £13.00 pp.

For a more local walk, join Bolton Ramblers on Sunday, April 8th for a leisurely 4 mile walk in the Bottom o' th' Moor area in Horwich. 

Meet at 2pm at Horwich Leisure Centre (Bus 125 from Bolton).  The walk will head downhill through lanes and fields to Wilson's Farm before climbing the clough to Coleman's and returning through Arcon Village.

The walk is free and there is no need to book.  Just turn up with suitably sturdy walking gear.  For more information, please contact Lou on 07815 076 797.
