- Range Walking Club
- Sunday 20th January 1980-Lancashire-Barley
- The next walk will be on Sunday, 20 January 1980, details of which are
set out below. The coach will leave the school promptly at 8.45 a.m. and
return approximately 6.30 p.m. Cost of the trip will be £1.50 adults, 75p
children. If you would like to go on this excursion, please complete the
attached slip and return it to school room 4 with the appropriate
fee as soon as possible. Since there is only one walking group on this
occasion, places will have to be restricted to one coach.
After a journey of approximately 1¾ hours, the walking party will start
from Roughlee and proceed via the edge of Pendle Forest to the village of
Barley. From there, the top of Pendle Hill is reached via the "Big
End" (1831 ft). The ramble continues along the ridge before
returning to Barley, a distance of 6½ miles with lovely views on the way.
The leaders for this walk will be Mr R Williamson and Mr E Williams. At
approximately 2.00 p.m. the coach will leave for Towneley Hall, near
Burnley, a most interesting ancestral hall converted into a museum of folk
lore and crafts,
As well as a packed lunch, walkers will need waterproofs and warm clothing
as well as a change in case of wet weather. On this walk the terrain is
rough and muddy so that walking boots or stout waterproof walking shoes
are essential and wellingtons will not be at all suitable. Ordinary shoes
must be worn inside Towneley Hall.
