Event description

Description

A walk taking in Trawden, Laneshaw Bridge and Foulridge. Along the route you will discover where Colne St Andrews Golf Club once stood and some of the history, characters and individual features of each village.

A circular walk with some steep hill sections along footpaths, bridleways, lanes and minor roads. We will be visiting the village of Trawden via the Trawden Flags and Priest's path, discovering the Jam Pot and tram tracks, then walking over to Wycoller with its ruined hall and quirky stone bridges. There are public toilets here. Then onto the picturesque village of Laneshaw Bridge following the riverside and discovering where Colne St Andrews Golf Club once stood, there are public toilets also here. Then over the hill passing a road known locally for good reason as "Watery Lane", and into Foulridge with its canalside and famous mile tunnel. We walk between upper and lower Foulridge reservoirs on our return to the Morris Dancers for a well earned drink. This walk was designed by Glenys Bucknell in January 2009 and a leaflet is available on the www.visitpendle.com.
