Amble back to ancient worlds by taking a history walk in Simonstone next month.

Historian Brian Jeffery will lead villagers on a journey through time as he explores historical sites within Simonstone’s parish. Participants will see a Medieval road leading to Manchester and trace an ancient route across the River Calder, then discover the assembly and meeting places for Home Guard training during World War II.

The walk will start at the old village green (now the parish garden at the crossroads with School Lane, Simonstone Lane and Whalley Road) at 2pm on Saturday, September 2nd. Walking boots are recommended.
