    5.00 miles



    Just a reminder of the last walk in November – Notice Board entry reads:

    Tuesday 30th November

    Car Walk – Rufford/Mere Sands

    Meet at Rufford Station (park on road outside) at 1 p.m. for an Easy walk of approx. 6 miles around Rufford/Mere Sands Woods

    Leaders: Jan & Fede Castro

    Following their recce, the Walk Leaders give the following description:

    “This is a 6.4 miles, Easy walk starting at 1 p.m., from outside Rufford train station (there is room to park on the road leading up to the station – before the double white lines start in the centre of the road).

    We start off along the River Douglas, where part of the path is slightly overgrown so gaiters may be handy if the weather is wet before the walk. Then we have a stretch of road, luckily there is a pavement. After that we follow a few paths across fields leading to Mere Sands Woods. There we walk around the edge of the woods and get back onto footpaths leading us back to the A59. After crossing the A59, we follow the canal back to our starting point. (There is a nice café at the end called Tastebuds for a tasty treat if anyone fancies that.) The walk should take 2.5 - 3 hours.”
