Lancaster & Morecambe Walking Group

Walk details for next Sunday 9 January 2022

Next Sundays walk the 9 January. Viv is leading this walk around Silverdale. Details as follows.

Meet at Silverdale hotel at 10am.Park in nearby streets eg  Lindeth Rd. Going through snicket gate we cross the headland to The Cove with wonderful views of the bay. We then turn inland and walk through the first part of Eaves Wood. On leaving the woods via the car park we walk along a very quiet country road. Look out for the cow! Perhaps a coffee stop opposite an overgrown pond. Cutting through a narrow alley we go down stone steps into a wide flat (and usually muddy) field. Once out we cross the main road into Silverdale, turn left for about 100 yards then right into a series of fields and onto a road which eventually leads to the Wolf House. However, we cut off left onto the cliff top above the estuary. This is the tricky part. The climb down through the bracken is steep and could be slippery. Once on the bottom path we turn right and make our way to Jenny Browns Point. We climb up onto the road, pass Gilbraltar Farm then down Lindeth Road to our starting point.

Approximately 6 miles. Easy walking.

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.
