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.

Membership FeesMembership fees are now due for payment, it's still the same amount £10. This membership will last until the end of 2021. This will help to replace (not all!) the monies that the club used to subsidise the trips during Covid. Thank you for your help to keep Wyre Ramblers going. Non payment of your fee will cause your membership of the club to lapse.

As usual for the later months of the year we watch the forecasts avidly, will it rain? Probably! So that's what will 'probably' happen on Sunday, but we will still hope that it doesn't. I plan to repeat the walk we did in 2018, it will more than likely be muddy. Gaiters anyone?
The walk commences at the bus stop near Barton Grange Garden centre on the A6. We quickly leave the A6 behind to cross over the main NW railway onto the path following the River Brock upstream.
Passing under the M6 we then cross a footbridge onto a tarmac road to Brock Side. We continue following the river passing Walmsley bridge then through to Brock Bottom.
After crossing the road bridge we take our leave of the river as we start our ascent to arrive ultimately at Beacon Fell.
Our route takes us across the fields passing Lower Lickhurst then over Bleasedale lane to above Middle Lickhurst.
A short stretch along North Nook lane brings us to our next path, passing below North Nook then climbs up across the field to Beacon Fell lane.
We’ll pass the visitors centre and it toilets, then ascend to the trig point (266m/873ft)
Heading east we’ll pass through a car park then crossing Beacon Fell lane again making for Broadhead then Wood Acre back onto tarmac.
Leaving the lane behind we cross the fields to another lane at Lower Core. Here we turn west briefly taking the farm track up to Blindhurst farm at the foot of Parlick.
Turning east again we follow the paths across the hillside to the end of Startifants lane.
Continuing across the fields we pass Fish House and After Lee farms, then on to Broad Meadow road in Chipping itself. Hopefully the coach will be just a few yards further along at the Methodist Church.
Today's walk is fairly easy, although probably muddy! A low-level walk with an ascent over Beacon Fell summit.
See you Sunday.
