Comments:

There was a cold wind whilst walking along Lytham Green but once we reach Saltcotes Road & turned towards Green Drive it was warmer. There were some snowdrops out along Green Drive & we saw 2 squirrels. Leaving Green Drive to go along by the wall of Lytham Hall, we reached Witch Wood where we saw the grave of ‘The Witch’ – a racehorse. At the end of the wood we turned left onto Church Road to return to Lowther Gardens.
