A group of “Friends” enjoyed a 2.5 mile walk through Victoria Park to Lomeshaye Village and then up into Nelson Centre, taking in the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. It was led by Andrea Smith and entitled, “ A Weavers Walk. “
We saw the second tallest chimney and second tallest church spire in Lancashire, mills, weavers cottages and the remains of a mill owners mansion, the Lord Nelson Inn from whence Nelson got its name, plus fine civic buildings both old and new. A well spent morning thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
