Walk: Chipping Cricket Ground, Lingey Hill, Fish House Lane, Clark House and Chipping Village
Start Point: Chipping Main Car Park Grid Reference: SD 623 432
Distance: 3 miles Ascent: 300 feet
Time: 1.5 hours
Weather: Wet, wet, wet

On a miserable wet day it was Captain Pug-washes opportunity to show what a good leader he is.  He may have wished however, due to the forecast of all day rain, that no-one would appear.  To his surprise a dozen intrepid ramblers appeared at the start point and in order not to disappoint his apostles he braved the rain and led a shortened walk.  Being a cricketing man he first showed the group where Chipping Cricket Ground was before taking them on a gentle incline towards Parlick Pike via Lingey Hill and Fish House Lane.  Here, the weather worsened and so it was decided to take a direct route along a “Quiet Lane” back to Chipping.  Although the weather was miserable people had a smile on their face.  Normally there are pleasant views of the lovely Lancashire countryside but unfortunately the lovely Lancashire rain blotted out the views.
