|Weather:||Cold and fine to start, turning to continuous heavy rain by lunch time.|
|Comments:||The walk is the Foulridge Beating the
Bounds walk, available on a leaflet.
In spite of a poor forecast 18 people turned up to beat the bounds. It was obviously very wet underfoot and when the weather turned wet and we had sheltered under a canal bridge to picnic we decided to return to the wharf by a shorter route!
It is an interesting walk with views of Pendle and Ingleborough on a fine day!

Still fine as we cross the fields . . .
but continuous rain accompanied us across the bridge . . .
and drove us to shelter under a bridge as we ate lunch
