- Range Walking Club
- Monday 29th December
Meet 10.00 am. (prompt please) at Great House (also known
as Bottom or Lower) Barn, Rivington (G.R. 628138) The most
direct route is the M58 to Orrell, taking the A577 into
Wigan Town Centre. Once under the railway bridge and just
before the actual town centre follow Bolton signs on the
right. Take care because of the road works and watch out
for the Horwich signs. The Rugby League ground
(floodlights can be clearly seen) should be on your left.
This is the B5238 and is a straight forward run into
Horwich. After passing over the A6 and under the M61, a
mile or so further on you reach Norwich and the A673.
Lever Park Ave is only a matter of yards along the A673
and its entrance is flanked two light coloured pillars.
If you know the route it should take just under the hour;
60 - 75 minutes if you are not familiar. Distance is 29
miles. It is an interesting area, well worth visiting,
with some interesting views from the Pike which is only a
gradual ascent of a mere 500 ft. or so (before lunch).
Muddy in parts and can be cool on tops
In order to gauge interest and to ensure that no one is
left behind when we start, it would be helpful if parties
intending to go would ring Phil Morgan. indicating the
number of people in their party and if they require
transport, or indeed are willing to provide transport for
those without. Your cooperation in these matters will
help ensure the smooth running of this annual excursion,
