are a friendly, long established rambling group based on the North Fylde area
of Lancashire. Membership of the club is mostly derived from the local towns
of Fleetwood, Thornton, Cleveleys and Poulton-le-Fylde.
Coach trips are made fortnightly all year round. In a typical year we visit Lancashire, The Eden Valley, Forest of Bowland, Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Howgill Fells, Peak District, North Yorkshire, Scotland and Wales.
A variety of walks are usually available, each led by an experienced leader. These will usually cover distances from about 6 miles to 15 miles, depending on conditions, locality and time of year.
COVID-19Please note that in the light of further relaxation of COVID social distancing restrictions all forward facing seats on the coach can now be used.
At present the fare stays the same as last year.

As you know this Sunday is the Christmas meal after the walk. Looks like we might even have some sunshine! We have one of the best turnouts in all of the years I've been with Wyre Ramblers! Before I get down to the walk, I'd like to thank a couple of our members.
Firstly Gary for his tireless work behind the scenes! The only time you know he is there beavering away, is if the website goes wobbly. Thank you Gary for all your efforts.
Secondly, but by no means any less is Nicola. This lady works away behind the scenes too, she has taken on our Facebook group and has brought in lots and lots of new faces to the club. Indeed, I wonder where we're going to put them all if they all decide to book on! Perhaps two coaches will be needed at this rate? Thank you Nicola for all your efforts too! Have a lovely holiday, I'm sure all the members will agree with me there.
Of course I would be remiss if I didn't mention your favourite 'B' leader - Peter. He always has a smile, even in the horribliest? weather! Thank you Peter for your sunny outlook and years of leading.
But I mustn't forget to thank Les as well, he has been called upon to lead throughout the year and has risen admirably to the challenge. Thank you Les, your efforts are very much appreciated.
Now where was I? Oh yes, the walk! A nice easy one, don't want be late getting away to Garstang do we?
The walk commences on the A6 below Yealand Conyers, we leave the coach to follow the lane up through the village. From the village we cross the grounds of Yealand Manor to pass alongside the Manor house and into Cringlebarrow Wood toward Yealand Hall and Yealand Storrs.
We leave the road into Yealand Hall Allotment woods and follow the path along the woodland edge until we cross a couple of fields into Gait Barrows Nature Reserve. We’ll leave the path to follow a track through Gait Barrows woodland until we reach Brackenthwaite Road.
Turning east we look for the footpath which takes us along Leighton Beck, we cross the beck and the path brings us to another forestry track where we turn east again to a large gate.
After passing through the gate we take the track straight ahead heading off toward our next destination the ‘Fairy steps’ hidden in the woodland above Beetham. Having carefully negotiated up the slippery steps we then descend them and follow the arrow straight track to pass through Hazelslack.
Our route takes us across four fields to the railway south of Black Dyke. Having crossed the railway we enter Hagg wood and work our way uphill to Silverdale Road.
Directly opposite is the next path we take around the foot of Arnside Knott to return to the tarmac. Now we work our way down to the prom via various roads and ginnels until we arrive next to the ‘Old Fighting Cocks’ Inn, and hopefully our coach!
Today’s walk is easy. There are three ascents today, first around 75m/250 ft. the second one to the ‘Fairy Steps which is around 97m/320 ft. The last one through Hagg wood about 67m/220 ft. The rest of the day is easy walking across fields and through woodlands.
So Linda and I will see you on Sunday, usual pick ups and times. Bring your change of clothes, if you are planning to change that is. The toilets are more than roomy enough at the Garstang Club.
John & Linda
