Walk Inspiration - Country Walking Magazine June 1999 Walk 29
My daughter's placement year comes to its conclusion, so once again, we are heading up country to do the two car job that is moving her out of shared accommodation and back to the bosom of the family home. For the next three months, until we take her back.
It provides an excellent opportunity to explore another part of the country. A search through my extensive walking resources indicates that Skelmersdale may be prettier than it sounds and only 3 miles away from the house that needs evacuation.
Looks promising as we park at Beacon Country park, with some fine views stretching from Snowdonia to the left, to the Lakes to the right and Anglezarke Hill behind.

We don't have time for this, not when there are caches to find on the great path to Ashurst Beacon. Fine walking, to be rewarded with great views.

All that remains of the walk is to follow the golf course to the car. Then its off to pick up Ellie, who's been texting us to find out when we are taking her to lunch. 1:45pm is the answer, but the real surprise for her is she's paying.
I've gone to Lancashire and forgot my wallet.
