    Hi Dave,Please could you forward this to Everybody,thank you.

    As most Codgers are now retired the first monthly do in the new year will be a walk on 13th January 2017.

    The walk will be the 8 mile Tonge Trail heritage trail under the guidance of Robert Holmes. We will depart from Bolton station at 11.00am to walk to the start point on Bury Road

    The train is from Manchester Victoria at 10.33am arriving in Bolton at 10.55am(please meet at 10.15am).

    There are lots of return trains from Bolton to various Manchester stations at regular intervals.

    A return ticket to Bolton is £5.10p although it is recommended that each individual manages his/her own ticketing requirements.

    After the walk we will go back into Bolton for the evening

    13th January 2017

    Twenty-two members arrived at Bolton’s Trinity Street station around 11:00 and met your correspondent following a short walk from the station to Starkie Road located on the periphery of the town centre.

    We set off bracing ourselves against the frigid 4C light breeze, the sunshine making little headway with lifting the chill from the previous night’s sub zero temperature.

    From Starkie Road, we headed towards Tonge Moor Road and Waters Meeting Road where we took lunch in the retail park adjacent to the Barley Brook. We headed northwards towards Bradshaw Road and then returned south along Bradshaw Brook. Shadowing the brook, we continued towards Bury Road and Leverhulme Park through Tonge Cemetery where we rejoined the Tonge Trail for our return leg into Bolton town centre.
    Arriving in Bolton’s town centre, we made our way to Churchgate were we visited Hogarth’s. From there we visited Barristers Bar, The Spinning Mule and The Sweet Green Tavern.

    The group thanked Robert for organising today’s walk.
