Start Point: Churchtown - Church car park Grid Reference: SD 482 428
Distance: 5.2 miles Ascent: Negligible
Time: 3 hours    
Weather: Warm and sunny
Comments: A pleasant leisurely walk, drier underfoot than it often is, though always muddy at Kirkland Farm. This walk was taken as a memorial walk for Jim Cassidy, one of our Sunday afternoon ramblers, who sadly lost his life on this ramble twelve months ago. A friend of Jimís family joined us for the walk and we laid flowers at the way marker on the A6. Thanks to our leader, Jeanette for leading a good walk and for enabling us to remember Jim in this way.
