Parbold and District ramblers

Walk Around Standish

Sunday 8th January 2023

Start & finish: Ashfield park car park, Wigan Rd Standish, Wigan WN6 OEQ

Time; 9.45 am at Parbold shops or Ashfield Park car park at 10am for prompt start at 10.15 am

Turn right at the lights at Standish in direction of Wigan. Ignore the left turning that says Ashfield park drive but turn next left just after a bus shelter before the Park and the car park is on your right.

This is approximately a 5 mile walk to blow away the cobwebs after the Christmas and New Year festivities. It takes in Standish Parish church, follows a route over the what was once Standish golf course to the railway line and back along the bridle path to the park.

There will be a coffee stop en route. We should be back at the car park by about 12.30.

Health & Safety

In line with the rambler's code of safety policy, please ensure that you wear stout walking boots and waterproof clothing. Walking sticks are recommended. Care must be taken crossing the main roads and whilst some of the tracks are in a good state of repair, parts of the walk are muddy and slippy in places, but if you are mindful of where you are walking, you should be fine.

Whilst every care has been taken to point out any potential hazards you are reminded that you are responsible for your own safety.
