Monthly Short Walk: Redisher Wood, Holcombe Village and Ramsbottom
27 walkers enjoyed the lovely autumn walk through Redisher Wood and Tagg Wood. The footpaths were covered in acorns, hazel nuts and conkers which we couldn’t help but crush on our way up to Holcombe Village.
After a short coffee break in the church yard, when some took the opportunity to see the grave stone of Joshua Knowles, the owner of Tottington Mill until his death in 1853. His funeral service, taken by the headmaster of Bury Grammar School was at Tottington St. Annes but as the vicar had banned him and other mill owners he was not allowed to be buried in St Annes graveyard with his wife.
We returned to Greenmount via, Nuttall Park and Summerseat.
