Ramblers around Turton tower

Our latest ramble was in the Bolton area, starting and finishing at the Black Bull pub in Edgworth.  A short 45 minute drive saw us in the car park and ready to roll by 10.40 with blue sky and sunshine.  A quick call into the local bowling club facility and then we were underway for a 7 mile jaunt.  Parks, woods, rivers and some great scenery made it a good day out. The weather tried to spoil it but we were back to the pub for a late lunch by 2 pm just in time to watch the rain.  Well done to Ann and Peter for a great day.
