BCV Rambles Walks 2017

Sunday 17th September 2017 - Bolton to Darwen Curry Walk

Start from Dunscar Bridge on Blackburn road, 200 yards north of Brewhouse Pub and half mile south of the War Memorial, Egerton, opposite Dunscar Business Park & Eagley Sports complex.
There is roadside parking available, we won't be returning directly to this point so if you are driving you will need to arrange transport to collect your vehicle. For bus users the No. 538 leaves Stand 'C' Bolton Interchange 9:37am and arriving at Dunscar at 10:10am. Might be good idea to re-check times the day before as they can change.
NOTE: Moor Lane bus station has now closed.

We will head off at 10:15 towards Belmont, via Counting Hill, to hit the Black Dog at 12:15pm for a 30 min lunch stop. Rick and I plus anyone else who wants to opt for a shorter walk can meet there. I can offer a lift from the town centre to two people.
Leaving the Black Dog, we will head to Great Hill then across the A675 to Tockholes Plantations, then along the Witton Weavers Way to Sunnyhurst Wood thence to the Sunnyhurst pub. After a well earned jar or two we have a choice of taxis or a short downhill stroll to Akash for the evening curry. We will be returning to Bolton by train at around 9:00-9:30pm.
The walk is being lead by Neil. If going please contact via the website contact form or to Trish directly
