||The Green Man, Inglewhite
||SD 546 399
||Intermittent rain and very
cold for April.
||Thirty odd people left The Green Man PH
for a circular walk over field paths, tracks and lanes in the Parish
of Goosnargh. Goosnargh is reputed to be the largest parish in
Lancashire and is now part of the City of Preston. Before departing
however, a number of people decided to don extra layers because it
was perishing cold and wet. The going was reasonable in view of
recent rainfall and the route followed the Lancashire Cheese Trail
and passed “Mrs Kirkham’s” cheese factory on the whey, sorry way.
Regrettably there was insufficient time to stop and sample the wares
but the group were rewarded with a good meal at The Green Man at
Inglewhite instead. This walk would be worth repeating in late
spring or summer months.
