Huncoat Trail

The Wigan Group's November Coach Ramble was at Huncoat near Accrington. Frank Atherton led a party of 19 on the firstĀ  part of the Huncoat Trail, whilst Peter Wilson led 21 on the full 9 mile trail. The weather forecast promised wind and rain but we avoided the worst of the weather until we got back home.The shorter 5 mile walk included 1.5 miles along the Leeds Liverpool canal and through the woodland in their fine autumn colours. Those on the longer walk encountered more hazardous conditions above Huncoat Quarries.
