Good afternoon, the weather is gorgeous and set to be this way for a few days, here are some reminders of what you can experience in our local area.
West Pennine Way
As the message is to stay away from the Lake District and other local beauty spots it is a good opportunity to explore the West Pennine Moors, 90 square miles of beautiful countryside right on our doorstep. Part of Greenmount is in the West Pennine Moor boundary.
Pick up a set of five leaflets form the outside the Old School, giving maps and a route of the West Pennine Way, devised by the Greenmount Village Walking Group. Suitable for all casual or serious walkers doing long or short walks. See www.westpennineway.org for more details.
Moorland Magic Video
With the help of Ken Dearden and the Holcombe Moor Heritage Group we have uploaded a copy of the HMHG’s video ‘Moorland Magic’ to our YouTube channel. This was previously only available on DVD. It is a lovely watch and very interesting, we hope it lifts your spirits a little during these difficult times.
Private Garden Visit
Closer to home, Gillian Davies usually opens her garden at this time of year to raise money for D-Caff or Alzheimer’s. Unfortunately like everything else this is cancelled for the foreseeable future. However she is prepared to allow groups of no more than 2 or 3 to walk around keeping the necessary distance. If you wish to see her garden could you ring her on 01204 885829 to book a time slot. Her garden situated on the corner of Newcombe Rd and Summerseat Lane is on a bit of a slope so may not suit everyone. Any voluntary donations would be passed on to the D-Caff.
Take care and please stay safe
