02/09/2018 John E. led a walk from Appley Bridge near Wigan. We did a W circuitous route through Dalton joined the Leeds Liverpool canal to Parbold where we lunched. The Parbold festival was in full flow with music, processions, fairground rides, bunting, food stalls. From Parbold N to Hunters hill then E to Asheton monument return to Appley Bridge via Fairy Glen. 18 members + 1 non member + 2 Springer spaniels. Back at Appley Bridge some went in the Bridge Inn. Although advertised at 11.5 miles due to navigational errors we did 14miles.
