The Wednesday Walkers is a new group which will meet every Wednesday at Daltongate in Ulverston (A590 end), starting on 8th January 2020. At this stage the Walks Programme is in the process of completion and we have volunteer Leaders for January and February. You can find the list of walks via the link on the right and Group Members will be issued with Leader contact numbers.
We leave Daltongate at 9.30am and share cars, so please arrive early to arrange places. Non-drivers can always get a lift. Fuel cost for passengers is £1 for every 10 miles. If you are travelling directly to the start point, be there at 10.00am unless otherwise instructed.
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.
You can view and print the Walks Programme by clicking on the link on the right, but be aware that it is constantly updated. Members of the Group will also be notified of changes by email. 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.
22nd Jan 2020 Rosside, Holebiggerah and Pennington area
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
15th Jan 2020 Whitbarrow Scar - The sun smiled on us again
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.
