Public Transport based walk with Gavin, meeting at Walk Start.
A pleasant linear walk in a fresh area for the MAD Walkers. There are several sections of quiet country tracks. I have stuck in some short steady climbs to appreciate the valleys from above too. Ice cream will be available at the pub stop too! There are other subtle reminders of Manchester and Lancaster.
