Thursday 7th September Walk Report.



18 walkers including one potential new member ( welcome Roger) set off on a lovely early Autumn morning from the Vane Arms at Sudborough. The route took them via roads and fields to towards Lowick where some of the group were amazed to see the vineyard on the outskirts of the village. Whilst this has been in existence for a few years it is not known if the first vintage has been produced.
Perhaps with the increasing reputation enjoyed by English wines Chateau Lowick will be up there with the best of them.
From Lowick the route took them to Drayton House where Margaret B gave an interesting talk on its history.
The banana break was taken within sight of Slipton and then via a longish road walking stretch back to the Vane Arms where and excellent lunch was had by all.
Thanks to Margaret B and Sue C for organising and leading a most enjoyable walk.
