Lancaster & Morecambe Walking Group

Next weeks walk 21 November 2021

Next week’s walk is

Burton-in-Kendal, the Lancaster Canal and Holme 7miles Easy

Start Time 10.00am and meeting point is an old disused access road to the motorway. To get there head for Burton and once on the A6070 pass the Longlands and then pass Greenlands Farm and take the first left (before Burton onto Cinderbarrow Lane) proceed on Cinderbarrow lane until just before you cross the M6 motorway there is a left turn onto an old motorway access road. There is normally plenty of parking there.

The walk follows the canal to Holme, after visting Holme we proceed to the Burton/Kendal road then follow a path through Clawthorpe Hall grounds and then back to Burton before crossing the motorway again and returning to the Canal back to the cars.

This walk has a bridleway, woodland, a short stretch of parkland, the canal, a few fields and good views of the Lake District from the elevated towpath.

If you wish to attend please contact Paul on 07887667290 or on [email protected] before Friday 19 November at 8.00pm.

Covid instructions

Walks will be limited to a maximum of 15 people (or as set by the walk leader).

Booking is ESSENTIAL, usually by 8.00 pm on the Friday before the walk, or as specified by the walk leader. You must book directly with the leader as once the walk is fully booked there will be a waiting list. Also turning up on the day without booking you will be refused on the walk. If you have booked on a walk and find you are unable to attend please let the walk leader know as soon as possible so that the place is available to someone else.

The walk leader will require your full name and contact phone number as we are required to keep a record of everyone on the walk for a period of 21 days after the walk. After that period the information will be destroyed securely.

As car sharing is not allowed (except for those in a “bubble”) the walk meeting place will be the start of the walk not our normal meeting point in Lancaster. I realise that this will be difficult for those who do not have transport however to enable us to resume walks we must follow this guidance.

You must NOT attend a walk if you have any Covid-19 symptoms, are in a household with someone who has symptoms or have been told to self isolate.

It is suggested that you bring your own alcohol based hand sanitiser, face covering and a basic first aid kit.

Social distancing must be observed on the walk and you must not share food and drink or equipment such as walking poles.

It is also important that if you develop symptoms of Covid-19 within 48 hours of the walk that you must apply for a Covid-19 test and co-operate with NHS contact tracing if requested.

Above all, if you are concerned about the personal risk of participating in group walking, don’t!

There is no pressure to get involved.
