Walk: Countess Hey, Daisy Barn, Holwood, Withinreap Farm and Ferrari’s Restaurant.
Start Point: Ferrari’s Restaurant, Thornley Grid Reference: SD 605 395
Distance: 5 miles Ascent: 240 feet
Time: 2.5 hours
Weather: Gale fore winds and hail showers
Comments: Departing from Ferrari’s Restaurant, a group of twelve used tracks and muddy field paths to take a circular route to return to Ferrari’s Restaurant for a Christmas Dinner with several other members of the Fylde Group.  The group made good progress even with high winds, hail showers and waterlogged fields.  Many of the stiles were extremely slippery and had to be traversed with great care.  Another couple of obstacles such as a locked five barred gate and a footbridge minus handrails didn’t deter the group.  Perhaps the thoughts of Christmas Dinner at Ferrari’s urged them on. (Both obstacles have been reported to Lancashire County Council).  The meal and service was excellent.
