The Carol Downing Memorial Walk.
September 18 @ 12:15
The walk is about 4 miles, taking in a pretty stretch of the Aire and Calder Navigation and a circuit of Rothwell Country Park with fine views of Leeds from the top.
Meet in Woodlesford at about 12.15 outside the Two Pointers pub (LS26 8RE). Car drivers should find street parking nearby. The train we are aiming for is 11.58 out of Leeds station, arriving at Woodlesford station at 12.07. Assuming the train is on time it’s less than 5 minutes from the station to the rendezvous point.
We would aim to finish the walk at the Two Pointers Pub for refreshments. Bring suitable walking gear, water and a packed lunch. The paths are good throughout with a steady climb to the highest point of the Country Park. There are no public toilets en route but the pub is scheduled to open at 12 noon so they may let you use the toilet there if necessary, on the understanding that we will be returning to the pub after our walk.
My feeling is that any poetry or song we choose to perform should relate to our memories or thoughts of our friend, Carol.
If you require further details, phone Rob on 0113 216 4492 in good time or try 07421 043 614 on the day. Please only use the mobile number on the day as I rarely answer it otherwise. Ring the mobile if I don’t show up on time as it will mean that the train is late or cancelled.
