The Walkie Talkies
Date Distance Leader(s) Walk Details & Meeting Point
16th January Long Sam Meet in the centre of the village of Millthorpe, where there are two pubs (SK 317764). Millthorpe is about 2 miles along the B6051 from Owler Bar.
Our circular walk goes across fields to Moorhall and continues south past Barlow Grange and Bluster Castle to the Gate Inn on the B6050 (half way). We then turn back north past Crowhole reservoir, Rumbling Street, Johnnygate Lane (honestly, you couldn’t make these names up) to Millthorpe. (9km, a tad less than 6 miles, easy going but probably muddy).
