Furness Ramblers News

 Phil Walker's walk in the Rusland Valley from Bouth originally planned for 10th December has been brought forward to 3rd December.  There is therefore no walk currently planned for 10th December.                                                                                         

Furness Ramblers is comprised of walkers who come mainly from the Barrow, Millom and Ulverston areas as well as the surrounding valleys and villages.

  We are a friendly group for all ages and abilities, organising regular walks around the Lake District and beyond.

          Walks are normally held on every Sunday at  locations throughout Cumbria and sometimes  into Yorkshire and North Lancashire - see our Walks Program Page for full details of current walks.  

        If you would like to join us or just try us out, please get in touch with any of our members listed on the Contacts Page



        On Sunday John's walk took us around our own local Furness peninsular.  We set off on a cold but sunny morning with our leader's warning to expect mud, mud and more mud ringing in our ears.  In the event we got away lightly with the mud but we did have to do a diversion around a flooded tunnel.  A lovely walk.

         We are now well into our Autumn programme of walks and these can be found on the website. 

              Note that there are still some new volunteering opportunities  in the areas of Researching Old Footpaths.  For more details see our "Footpaths Section"

         Natural England have announced that work has started on the new Coastal Path Section in our area, stretching from Silecroft to Silverdale. We expect to be making an input into the planning of the best route along the Furness Coast.  The section of the coastal path around Walney Island has now been defined and agreed. The proposals can be viewed on the Natural England website.
