Future Walks

Penwortham Ramblers Please Note

Will ramblers who get picked up at Busfields in Penwortham, please note that because the A59 Liverpool Rd going through Penwortham will be closed for a few weeks, the pick-up point will be at the bus stop opposite the old library, now Penwortham Art Centre, this will be for the Ingleton walk only, hopefully the road will be open for our next outing.

Our next walk is at Ingleton on Sunday December 8th 2019

Ingleton, located against the awe-inspiring backdrop of Ingleborough, one of the famous Three Peaks has to be the outdoor adventure centre of The Dales with a host of activities on offer as well as plenty of welcoming cafes & pubs. It has a rich and diverse history including mining, railways and textiles, to connections with authors such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Michael Moorcock.

At a quick glance the village of Ingleton may seem a little too modern to be part of the Yorkshire Dales. Unlike many areas in the region, it is home to some relatively new housing estates, overlooked by the 723 metre mountain of Ingleborough, and the River Doe and River Twiss are stocked with stocks of brown trout, sea trout and salmon;

We pass a number of pot holes and shake holes on our way to Yordas Cave. We head south, picking up a path between Shout Scar and Kingsdale beck to Braida Garth Scar, then along George’s scar (which could be rather muddy and boggy) to Twistleton Hall.
