Weather: Rain all evening
Leader: Graham Thomas/;John Wilson
Party Number: 18
Distance and Time: 2 miles 2 hours
A party of 18 set off from the famous Much Hoole Parish Church where Jeremiah Horrocks was the Curate here. He rented a room at the nearby Carr House and from there he observed the first transit of Venus across the surface of the Sun in 1639.
Hoping that a rain shower was only brief we walked to the main road to turn left then a path on the left followed a stream.
The rain got heavier but we carried onto the River Douglas.
We didn't hang around but walked quickly down Haunders Lane then a path on the left led through a Corn field back to the Church.
The night should have been abandoned but it wasn't known as to the extent of the weather at first.
No pictures were taken on the evening.
