Home > Outings > Gates To Gidlow

Unbelievable morning again for our excursion around Wigan, unseasonably warm and the Sun made an appearance as well, can’t ask for much more. Twenty two of us took advantage and headed up via Scotsman’s to the Whelley Loop and into the Plantations. Gave the Hall a miss on this occasion, did the little climb to the main gates before making our way through Gidlow and Beech Hill to join the canal for the journey back at Martland Mill. Did have something a little more strenuous in mind, (don’t think Jim was up to it though) sighs of relief all round I would imagine, maybe next time!

Thanks for coming along everyone, hope you enjoyed it!
