ANGLEZARK AMBLE Photos - 12th February 2011

The Anglezark Amble is an annual long distance challenge walk organised by the West Lancashire LDWA group. It attracts about 300 entries. Last saturday I took part in my 5th or 6th AA, my walk number was 8. I limited myself to the short route of 16 miles, normally I have completed the full route of 24 miles...but I am not so fit. 16 miles was enough. The day began with a grey mist but it turned sunny later. At stages it was a bit muddy underfoot.
The photos are haphazard and taken on the move or in a rush and so they are not of a great quality. Hopefully they convey alittle of what it was like on the walk.

Certificate of achievement.
My rucksack and kit for the day.

Check point / feeding station.
The route crossed some wild moorland tracks.
White Coppice cricket pavillion checkpoint...about 3 miles before the finish.
It is generally so on LDWA challenge walks at the end that a small meal is provided at the walk HQ. Today it was hotpot with red cabbage.
