Walk: Canal Towpath; Duckett's farm; Brow Top; River Brock at New Bridge.
Start Point: The Roebuck, Bilsborrow Grid Reference: SD 510 398
Distance: 5.4 miles Ascent: 230 feet
Time: 2.75 hours    
Weather: Wet
Comments: Despite the rain, 27 people turned up to walk north along the canal towpath leaving to cross fields to the footbridges over the railway & the M6 & then on to Duckett's Farm where we turned right along the lane. Turning left up May Lane we reached Brow Top from where we dropped down to New Bridge & a well earned coffee break. Following the river footpath under the M6 we reached the railway line to walk along by the railway & through fields before passing Bilsborrow Church to our starting point.
