Walk: Berry’s Farm, Glasson Branch canal, Lancaster canal, Galgate, Ellel, Parkside Farm, Webster’s Farm
Start Point: Condor Green picnic site Grid Reference: SD 457 561
Distance: 5 miles Ascent: 130 feet
Time: 3 hours    
Weather: Sunny & warm
Comments: 18 walkers set off from the Picnic site to cross the road at The Stork PH & continue down a lane to a minor road to Berry’s farm. Here we started to cross fields to the Glasson Branch of the Lancaster Canal. At the Junction with the main Lancaster Canal we turned north to pass the Galgate Marina & on under Ellel Hall bridge leaving the canal to go through Forerigg Wood, where a tricky stile has been replaced by a kissing gate. After a short climb up a hilly field it was down to another new gate which replaced an even more tricky stile, to start the walk back via Parkside farm & Websters farm, retracing our steps along the lane & back to the Picnic site. A pleasant walk in perfect weather.
