March RG – Coates, Tarlton

Thursday 23rd March
Ramblers Group

Coates – Tarlton

led by Mary Saunders (see a copy of the poster here)

A fairly comfortable ramble both in distance and terrain. We will go over the railway to Coates Church and meander through the woodland eventually picking up the path towards Tarlton and back down the slope to the pub.
Lunch after at The Tunnel House, menu choices to be made at the pub before setting off. (There is a website for a preview but menus were not up-to-date).

More information and photos can be found on our facebook page.

After a wet start to the morning, we were lucky that the rain had stopped and the sun came out during the morning.  We walked 4.5 miles from Tunnel House, near Coates, across fields and along muddy woodland paths eventually picking up part of the Macmillan Way until we reached the village of Tarlton.  We had a look inside the tiny little church there, before returning across the fields to the pub which provided some excellent food.
