Recommended Comments

Evening mid-wk paddlers - Julian, Rob, Derek, Maggie and Chris - I hope you are all set for the morning all ready for a leisurely start - 11am at brick lane parking area.

However, the access road to brick lane, besides the sports centre is closed! SO

From the Kendal direction:

left at the main traffic lights - as normal

3rd left? off the main drag is MORCAMBE Rd

Turn Right onto BRICK Lane somewhere towards the end of Morcambe Rd.

carry onto the end of Brick Lane to find the dog walkers parking area.

see you all in the morning - look forward to a swift morning paddle with the tide and the wind and a more challenging return against the wind, which is picking up, with a later return time than 2.45, due to tide differences!

kind regards

Mike Sunderland
