Walking the Bounds – The Over Roughlee Vaccary

Date: 25th March 2017
Times: 10:15 am - 3:00 pm
Location: Pendle Heritage Centre

Due to inclement weather this field walk has been postponed for one week so it’s now being held on Saturday 25th March. In the unlikely  event of bad weather yet again, (in Lancashire? Surely not!) Brian will be enlightening us on the history of the area in his own inimitable style in the comfort of the Green Room with a talk entitled ‘Roughlee Through the Ages’.  Questions will be welcomed and I’m sure that detailed, factual answers will be forthcoming due to his amazing and encyclopedic knowledge of the area.  What’s more, it’s FREE!!!!!!!!!!!

Meet at the cafe at Pendle Heritage Centre to discuss the plan.  We’ll then drive to and park near Thorneyholme at Roughlee.  The walk will be a short and relatively easy one (honest!) of about 2.5 miles (4kms) following minor roads but will mainly be on good paths with a few stiles.  If you’ve not been on one of these before , it’s a good one to start with.  Wrap up warm and dry as judging by previous walks it will take us about 3 to 3.5 hours and you’ll need a packed lunch!  Why a picture of a long horned cow…you’ll just have to join us to find out!
