Witch Wood, Green Drive, Lytham Green

Start Point: The Fairhaven, Ansdell Grid Reference: SD 345 275
Distance: 5 miles Ascent: Little
Time: 2.5 hours
Weather: Dry with a fair amount of sun
Comments: A winter walk on good surfaces with no stiles through Witch Wood (named after a horse buried there) where we saw lots of snowdrops. Passing the entrance to Lytham Hall the group of 33 walkers continued along Green Drive, which is traffic free, before crossing the main road to Lytham Green. As the tide was out we were able to walk along the beach for some distance before regaining the promenade to return to Granny’s Bay & our lunch.
