Lancaster & Morecambe Walking Group

Walk Details for next Sunday 12 December 2021

Crook O’Lune Bridge – the Lune – Gray’s Seat Circular

Starting at the Crook O Lune car Park we first go westward along the Lune to the village of Halton before crossing to the south bank by the old bridge. The Lune is followed again using, in part, an old railway line to get round a tricky point. The river is then left to climb to a 19th Century viewpoint known (after the poet) as Gray’s Seat and is rejoined for a walk through flower meadows back to the start. As this is a short walk I will extend it to follow the river to the bridge carrying the water to Manchester then cross the bridge and back to Crook O Lune through the meadows on that side of the river. This will make the walk 5/6 miles and is easy.

Meet at Crook O Lune car park at 10.00am (Parking Charge £1.00 all day)

If you wish to attend the walk please contact Paul on 07887667290 or [email protected] before Friday 10 December at 8.00pm.

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

Booking is ESSENTIAL. 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.
