Walk: Glasson Dock
Start Point: Victoria Hotel Grid Reference: SD 446 561
Distance: 5.5 miles Ascent: 160 feet
Time: 2.75 hours    
Weather: Fair with the odd glimpse of sun and no rain
Comments: 29 walkers set out for this mostly flat walk. An interesting 'first half' along the coastal path to Cockersands Abbey and then back via a minor road and fields to the canal. Then back to the pub where we were joined by 4 walkers who had 'done their own thing'.
