Saturday 24th June 2017 Walk Report.



17 members plus Patrick the dog assembled at the White Horse at Stoke Albany on a very pleasant morning for walking compared with the extreme temperatures seen earlier in the week.
(Note: 17 is a good number for a Saturday walk as given the effort that goes into preparing the Saturday walk card six months in advance sometimes the numbers turning up are very small and are disheartening for the organisers on those days.)
 
Our route was of an undulating nature but on reaching the top of the various undulations superb views across the Welland Valley were to be had.
We took our banana break in Ashley churchyard and most of us took the opportunity to have a look inside the church which is a most interesting structure in that part appears to be the original and the other half is what can only be described as being in the style of St. Pancras Station Victorian.
 
On reaching the top of the first undulation a superb view of Ashley nestling in its valley was too be had with one walker remarking it looked like a scene from Brigadoon.
 
On returning via various fields and with more superb views we crossed the edge of Stoke Albany golf course and returned up the final slope to the pub where we were joined by Linda D and John C for lunch which seemed to take a long time to come but was enjoyable none the less.
Our thanks are due to Peter and Sue H for organising and leading the walk and for their jungle clearing of overgrown footpaths prior to the walk.
