Comments:

The walk took place in the Boroughs of Preston and Wyre.  The route was by way of field paths, quiet lanes and a canal tow path.  Seventeen people were led by a youngish lady who was leading for the first time.  It was a good walk, and although mainly flat, offered views of the nearby Pennines.  The Plough at Eaves offered good food and speedy service

An unusual sign - it did carry eighteen though

The bridge in question on the A6 at Barton - the iron work between the stonework

This young lady was explaining how she was attacked by ants
