25th April Evening Walk

The first of our evening walks took place today and was a great success. Father Price and 10 members of the church set off on a beautiful evening for a gentle ramble along the river bank and up into the fields by Accrington road.  The views were splendid and our guide showed us an old overgrown well in the hillside said to have been used in the time of the Abbey.  Climbing further we were able to enjoy the view over towards the forest of Bowland and the rest of the Ribble valley.  Much discussion took place when we reached the fields that are to be built on in this next wave of development. The area is beautiful with an abundance of wildlife including a family of Kingfishers, we were left to speculate the effect that the new houses  and their occupants will have upon them.  We finished a very enjoyable evening back in the village about one and a half hours later. The company and conversation was adjudged to have been as important as the exercise. We are looking forward to next week, fancy joining us?
