NWR Walk – Making Strides Together

On October 4th 8 Members decided to take a 5 mile walk around Lymm village. We met at Lymm Dam then walked around the lake(also known as Lymm Dam) and into the village. We were interested to discover that Lymm had an area called The Bongs just like Goostrey, and apparently the term originates from a medieval Cheshire dialect term “le bancs” meaning a wooded bank. Just as we arrived in the village the rain started but luckily there was a lovely cafe in the centre so we were well fed and watered, and a little drier when we set off (in the rain) along a path called the Dingle, leading to Spud Wood then back to the village via a path alongside the Bridgewater Canal. We arrived back in Lymm thoroughly wet but all agreed it was a lovely walk made better by tea and cake in another delightful cafe.
