AX112 bus walk - Saturday 12 August 2017

Walk across the estuary from Greenodd 

 

Meeting points: 

·        Catch the 09.25 bus from Coniston centre

·        Catch this bus somewhere along the route between Coniston and Greenodd

Note that walk leaders usually get on at Haws Bank bus stop.  Remember that the bus now leaves Coniston at 09.25 rather than 09.30.

We shall take the X12 bus from Coniston to Greenodd and walk across the footbridge that crosses the estuary.  There will be pubs for lunch if wet – but if fine some may wish to bring sandwiches and eat outside.  We’ll walk to Spark Bridge or Lowick to get on the returning bus, catching the one that gets into Coniston at 16.27.

 

All welcome – no need to give notice. 


 

Volunteers Needed

I’m organising the Lakeland Country Fair Fell Race again at Torver on Sunday 20th August. We normally have around 50 competitors from far and wide who race up the Old Man and back.
I need two marshals for the top of the Old Man and three others to help with registration and timekeeping. Please contact me if you can help or would like more information. Helpers get free entry to the show and a packed lunch & drink …and my gratitude!
