It’s been a while!

Posted by on Nov 29, 2012 in Information, Walk | 0 comments

TweetWell it’s been a while since I last posted, with work and all. Saw the weather forecast for today and thought, must get at least a quick walk in to clear the cobwebs away. So jumped in the car had a quick ride out.   It’s amazing what is 15 mins from your front door, you just need to make the effort! One disappointing aspect to my brief walk, was the amount of litter about the place, and damage to gates and the like! The area is there to be enjoyed by all, it’s a pity that a mindless few are spoiling it for everybody else, act responsibly take your litter home,...

TweetThis is a simple flat walk which is great to do at any time of the year. If you are arriving by car you are best parking in the car park just after the Rivington Primary School (located on the opposite side of the road to the bowling green, the first right turn on Horrobin Lane after you cross the reservoir. From this small car park there is a small steep pathway (on the right as you enter the car park), just head down this path into a wooded area with a pathway which runs parallel to the reservoir. If you keep walking through here you will pass Go Ape and rune parallel to...
