Haigh Hall - Wednesday 12th May
8.5 miles starting at Haigh Hall, then descending down through the park to the Upper and lower plantations. then through some woodland, back to the Leeds Liverpool canal. Heading towards to Standish along the canal, we had our first downpour, so waterproofs were quickly out!
We then made our way towards Wigan Golf Club and a beautiful bluebell dell, where we had our lunch stop sheltering from the rain. On our way back we took a little bit of a detour to the club house and moat of Wigan Golf club to see their black swans, quite rare in this part of the world, before heading back to Haigh hall on the other side of the canal,
