Our full Easter programme will be announced shortly.
Join a group of people enjoying trips out to walks, accessible from Barrow Station by catching the 10.10 am train out of Barrow on the first Thursday of each month.
A full programme of monthly 2 to 3 hour walks will run throughout the year on the first Thursday of each month. Each walk has been mapped out, using every station between Grange and Millom. The walks are about 5 miles, taking up to 3 hours and can be over rough ground, occasionally very wet underfoot. Most walks end in the vicinity of an agreeable place to eat and drink. New walkers will be made very welcome. Walks start at 10.30am.
