10:00 Tue 12 Dec 2017 - RIVINGTON The walk will start from the upper car park, next to Rivington Hall.
We will be walking across Winter Hill on well used paths. Please note that the paths will be very icy and the temperature is forecast to remain below zero for the whole day. Please come prepared for winter conditions.
10:00 Thu 14 Dec 2017 - LANGLEY Teggs Nose and Holehouse Ln CPs are both closed due to works. The start point now is the bus shelter on Cock Hall Ln opposite the Methodist church (SJ941715). Cars can park on-street in Langley on Main Rd or in either of the two small CPs on Clarke La by the side of Bottoms Reservoir 5 mins walk away.

Walk Leader's report from Longridge - Thursday 7th December [Leader John Haines]
The leader was surprised to find 13 had ignored all weather warnings and turned out on a blustery day. Luckily apart from a short flurry of hail the rain held off. However the previous night's deluge had left the ground waterlogged. We started downhill towards the River Loud negotiating several less than ideal stiles. River levels meant that the stepping stones had to be avoided. After visiting the lime kiln at Knot Hill there was some road walking which was welcome after some of the underfoot conditions. After lunch by the River Hodder it was a long slog, in boot testing conditions, back up onto Longridge Fell, through the forest and to the trig. There were good views of Blackpool Tower around to all 3 peaks of Yorkshire. It was then against the wind back to the cars. Thanks for good company and the, I think, friendly banter.
Walk Leader's report from Mobberley - Tuesday 5th December [Leader Judith Halman]
19 arrived at the new start point making the walk a 'Tad' longer than advertise. The going was hard to soft but for Mobberley with it's reputation for the clay underneath we did very well. The Airport didn't disappoint with lots to see, including the 380 taking off. The Bulls Head proved popular lots of different beers. Thanks all for a great winter's day walk.
