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.

Time 6.5 - 7 hours
Sunset Time 21:22

Sorry for the very late posting, I've been closely monitoring the forecasts. (see below the walk description). I had plans to tackle 'Pinnacle Ridge' this time out, however the forecast is for rain, showers. So, reluctantly I'm not willing to attempt it in adverse conditions. Instead I plan to repeat the route to Pooley Bridge from Kirkstone we last did in 2017. This is an excellent walk for any of you who are collecting Wainwrights (about 9/10)
We take the path up over St Johns Bells Banner then on to Stony Cove Pike (763m/2503ft).
Then descending steeply into Thresthwaite Mouth before climbing steeply out to Thornthwaite Crag and its Beacon (784m/2572ft). Next we traverse the length of High Street (828m/2716ft today's high point) heading over Rampsgill Head (792m/2598ft) at its far end. Shortly after, we cross over High Raise (802m/2631ft) then begins the long slow descent into Pooley Bridge (a further 13.75km/8.5miles)
We pass over a succession of tops as we make our way on the long downhill.
1st - Red Crag - (711m/2333ft)
2nd - Wether Hill - (670m/2198ft)
3rd - Loadpot Hill - (671m/2201ft)
4th - Bonscale Pike - (520m/1706ft)
5th - Arthurs Pike - (530m/1739ft)
From Arthurs Pike we follow a good path down until we meet a wall, then take the better track east. We forsake the track rather quickly as we have to cross a rather ‘damp’ section of fellside to join the next path round to Roehead.
At Roehead we step onto tarmac, this quiet lane leads us directly into Pooley Bridge. We'll join the 'B' group from here, getting on the coach for home.
The walk today is quite a strenuous one, in parts that is. It has two ascents of note, both about 220m/700ft each. The descent is a long one too.
So there you have it. Sadly, Linda is not to good at the moment so won't be with me tomorrow. Hopefully she will be recovered for the next outing. See you tomorrow.
