Showing posts from June, 2021


This is the June selection of photos from members who have been energetically tackling the Covid restrictions in a variety of different ways and groups. Allan’s photos start with the familiar canal scenery – lock gates, bridges and even some war time remains. After the Liverpool Waterfront they moved to Rivington, Darwin and Turton Towers, Smithills Hall and Bolton’s Barrow Bridge 246 foot Chimney (see an excellent utube of its history).    Then, tiring of roaming the Lancashire fells Allan, Geoff and Mike went to the other extreme and they ascended the Lord’s Rake on Scafell from the Wastdale YHA. Alan and Edwina’s photos are in the Lakes but then they move on to Scotland: ..‘Weather mostly iffy, there's a very wet Edwina on a Corbett called Little Wyvis (it's not little at all). We had one glorious day, so I went on my own to climb a high and very remote Munro called Beinn Hearsgarnaich. It's near the end of a 21-mile single-track road that ends in the middle of nowhere
