Walk: The Lune Estuary
Start Point: The Stork at Condor Green Postcode: LA2 0AN
Distance: 3 miles Ascent: Nil
Time:      
Weather: Mainly dry and cool
Comments: The first in a series of summer evening walks and social suppers was arranged by Gina Morris.
In spite of dreadful downpours in the afternoon and a very heavy sky as we met, 7 Ramblers assembled for a brisk 3 mile walk to Glasson Dock.
With wonderful views of the sea and The Lune Estuary and plenty of interest for the birders and botanists amongst us, this is also the historic site of the London and North Western single line railway, completed 1883 and closed in 1964, now serving as a nature reserve.
Astonishingly, it remained largely dry and discouraged any less hardy individuals to venture out, so it was a cool, pleasant walk and concluded with a thoroughly enjoyable meal in front of an unseasonal, but welcome log fire in The Stork.
