The first Saturday in May is now established as ‘Benefice Boundary Walk Day’. Or it has for us! Over the last couple of years we have also linked this Benefice Walk with the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ global prayer initiative.
Our walk was led by Geoff Hamilton and was an educational adventure of industrial mill ruins of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. We were aided by the Bury & District Local History Society book titled ‘The Forgotten Valley’.
Our annual Benefice walk around the Boundary of the two Parishes will take place this year on Saturday 5th May.
