The annual Boxing Day walk was not that well support as it was listed on two cycling
clubs runs list which bit of shame when most cyclists who live in the North Lancashire
and South East Cumbria spend most year riding through the area and don’t get off
the bike to have look around the area on two feet, as the Silverdale and Arnside
is area for walking in and not really area for off-
Anyway getting back to the walk, we had three wise men out on the walk, these being Fred Lloyd, Don Dalton and Ray Moss, then me and Pat Lloyd (who my mother). So once we finish chatting at the car park at Eaves Wood we headed along The Row towards Silverdale Golf Course, then followed the footpath across the golf course to Silverdale Railway Station where we walk along the road to Leighton Moss Visitor Centre for brew in the cafe which is open on Boxing Days which is one reasons why we have the Boxing Day Walk in this area in each year.
After our brew stop, there a little bit road work before followed the foot path up to Trowbarrow Nature Reserve which worth stopping to look at! After spending a few minutes looking at the view we then followed the footpath down to Red Bridge where we followed the road down to Hawes Water where we followed the footpath around the tarn, stopping part way around for lunch.
After lunch we continue on the footpaths around Hawes Water and then head towards Waterslack. After walking through Waterslack, we followed several footpaths through Eaves Wood up to Pepper Pot to look at view before walking back to the cars at the car park.
