Walk details for next Sunday 2 January 2022

Conder Green, the River Lune and the Lancaster Canal

The walk starts at Conder Green Car Park (Parking Charge £1.00 all day). The walk begins by going north along the track of the disused railway, now a cycleway, before following lanes and tracks eastwards towards the Lancaster Canal. This is followed south through deep cuttings rich in wildlife before a path is taken going westwards through pastures back to the Stork Inn and the car park and picnic site.

The walk will start at 10.00am and is 6 miles Easy. The last part of the walk could be very muddy so make sure you have good walking footwear, gaiters are not necessary but recommended to keep trousers from getting too muddy, and walking poles could be useful.

Usual Covid rules apply as below.

Covid instructions

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.
