Wednesday Walkers

The Wednesday Walkers Group is following the Ramblers Association recommendations as of 20th December 2020

AS OF DECEMBER 31st 2020, CUMBRIA HAS NOW BEEN ADDED TO TIER 4 AND THERE WILL BE NO u3a GROUP WALKS UNTIL RESTRICTIONS ARE RELAXED AGAIN

Please see the link on the News page regarding government advice U3ACovid19Guidance290720vs4.pdf

Wednesday Walks range from 6 to 9 miles in length and up to 1000ft in height. Suitable clothing is a must and should include good walking boots and waterproofs. We won't walk in very bad weather so if the forecast is poor, make sure you check your email the night before, in case the walk has been cancelled. Winter walks are likely to be low and local, and we will venture further afield as the seasons progress.

For more information contact Ann Wilson.

Up and Down the Duddon Valley - 11/03/2020

A very interesting walk let by Neil, taking us along Parson's footpath which few of us had walked before. Lunch in one of the oldest Crook barns in Cumbria made the day.

Around Coniston Water March 4th

A good day at last but look at the recent flood level of the lake as shown on the bench where we washed our boots.

The highlight of this walk led by Sheila Bull was to cross the remains of the 11th century Pennington Castle. It made up for the 'slutchy' (Sheila's words) areas we sometimes had to cross. Read about the fascinating history of the castle online at History of Pennington Castle

Nearly there We made it!

08/01/2020 - Thirteen of us turned out to enjoy a seven-mile walk in the Coniston area. We were very lucky to have sunshine most of the day and no rain. It was a little wet underfoot in places, but everyone agreed it was a lovely walk and a great way to start the year.
