A GROUP of disabled ramblers has shown that the countryside is just as accessible as the rest of the county by using all-terrain scooters.
Using the scooters – known as Trampers – a group of 20 people from the national Disabled Ramblers’ Association recently joined local enthusiasts to take part in an organised 4.5km trek from Leighton Moss Nature Reserve in Silverdale.
This was the first of three successive days of rambles; it was followed by a trek through the Scorton-Grizedale Valley area and, on the final day, a ramble through Lots House Farm and Caton Moor including the wind farm.
Trampers are specially designed four-wheel drive all-terrain electric vehicles.
