Rossendale Ramblers: Limestone and lunches


Despite now being in autumn, the weather was good for our two walks last week, though we fear that will not last.

On Wednesday, September 22, 22 ramblers had quite a tough 10-mile walk from Settle, with lovely views in this dramatic limestone area, where caves are a regular feature.

The three Yorkshire peaks were all in view at various times on the walk.

Then on Sunday, September 26, six walkers enjoyed an easy six-mile ‘agricultural amble’ from Abbey Village.

Three walkers could not join us because of road closures due to the very demanding Iron Man competition on the same day – our members had an easy time by comparison!

Coming up, on Saturday, October 2, we have a Saturday morning two-hour ‘pub walk’ from the American Golf Centre at Marl Pits, Rawtenstall.

This will finish around 12.30pm, so those who wish can enjoy a drink and/or lunch in the onsite Sports Lounge, so please come and join us.

This is followed on Sunday, October 3 by a 10-mile walk from Conistone, a lovely village between Grassington and Kettlewell.


This is limestone country again, so the scenery should be very special.

Finally, on Wednesday, October 6, we have a remarkably flat walk from Burscough Bridge, taking in the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, Martin Mere, and Mere Sands Nature Reserve, so wildlife fans should have a field day!

These walks are free, but after three walks with us we ask you to join The Ramblers, at a cost of only £3.05 per month.
