We will explore the hillsides and valley of Weir, our main objective being the mysterious Broadclough Dykes. Sites in the area date from prehistory to the industrial revolution and beyond.
Distance up to 5 miles on mainly flat terrain, but there will be ascents and descents to negotiate as we cross the valley.
Meet from 10am for coffee at Anna’s Cafe–Bar, 165 Burnley Road, Weir OL13 8QE
with appropriate clothing/footwear for the weather conditions and a packed lunch. Walk departs at 10.30am.
