Iíve been asked to help out with a local history walk in Feb above White Coppice and over the moors to Brinscall. This morning (Thu 12th Jan 2023) I did a reconnoitre of the route to check if the paths are accessible. Most were except one section that was blocked with fallen trees. Iíll find a way round. I was lucky to miss most of the rain.
