Walk: Areas of Adlington, Worthington and Worthington Lakes
Start Point: The White Crow, Worthington Grid Reference: SD 583 123
Distance: 5 miles Ascent: 200 feet
Time: 3 hours
Weather: Continuous rain
Comments: Eleven people took part in this circular walk from The White Crow.  The weather was not very kind but it was a good walk.  At one time the area was used for extracting coal, sand and clay.  Much landscaping took place in the not too distant past and little can be seen of those previous industries today.  When the Worthington Lakes were constructed it was necessary to build a tunnel to allow the River Douglas to flow under them.

Access to Worthington Lakes from Arley Wood

A water catchment area in more ways than one

An unusual coloured field

Inviting - but too wet and cold to linger today
