March 4th – Mining Heritage Walk – Whale Sough and Hubberdale Mine.

Saturday March 4th 2017, starting at 12 noon.

Leader: Adam Russell. Contact him at
This walk replaces the one originally scheduled for February 11th, which had to be postponed due to adverse weather.
An easy afternoon walk, lasting 3-4 hours, and being about 4-5 miles in length. No prior booking required – all welcome. 
Meet at 12 noon in the lay-by near Hard Rake between Flagg and Sheldon (grid ref SK 157685). The walk will trace the course of Whale Sough from its tail in Deepdale, across Whale Pasture and on to Hubberdale Mine. We will hopefully also visit Fidlers and Two Gins Shafts.
Please note: Due to the time of year and its exposed location up on the limestone plateau, this walk is very weather dependant. Please check the website for the latest information before you set out.
