History of the Walk
In days gone by local people walked along the boundary to remember Patterdale’s border. Boys may have been beaten to make fast the memory -
A special word of thanks to Stephen Gorton, who continues to organise the walk with the experience and dedication that has helped make this annual event both an ongoing success and an invaluable source of fundraising for both the Church and the School. A big thank you too to the many volunteers and helpers who man the checkpoints and provide the much needed catering and refreshments, and of course to the walkers themselves, and to all their supporters and their generous sponsorship!
