Photos from the last Saturdays Walk in Leigh (26/11/16) (Great photos by Rob Dean)

From the Leeds Liverpool Canal we entered Pennington Country Park and walked adjacent a deserted golf course to the "Flash". After lunch we carried on round to Pennington Hall Park tearooms for tea and coffee before finishing back at our starting point.
