The party visited the Jardins du Luxembourg and the Musée de Parfum in Paris, as well as the Chateau Chantilly and were treated to a display of dressage in the arena at the Museum of the Horse, Chantilly.

Association chairman David Smith, who received four books for Burnley Library from their hosts, said: “Some free time was also spent with their hosts who provided accommodation in their homes.

"Evening get-togethers were arranged and members enjoyed eating the French food prepared for them by their hosts. In September a party of 16 ramblers from Vitry will visit Burnley to enjoy the delights of our surrounding countryside.”
