Walk: Witch Wood , Green Drive & Lytham Green
Start Point: Granny’s Bay, Fairhaven Lake Grid Reference: SD 344 273
Distance: 5 miles Ascent: Minimal
Time: 2.5 hours    
Weather: Dull - but no rain
Comments: 23 walkers, including several new people, enjoyed an easy walk in Lytham. After passing the White Church & over the railway footbridge we reached Witch Wood, named after a racehorse named ‘The Witch’ buried there in 1888. We didn’t manage to see the stone marking the grave – probably overgrown, but we did see some lovely spring bulbs in flower. The next section was along the side of Lytham Hall grounds to Green Drive, which is another stretch of pleasant parkland, where we saw squirrels in the trees. The return to the start was along Lytham Green & sand dunes.
