Saturday 29th June 2019 Walk Report.

Seventeen walkers arrived at  Rockingham Main St for a walk to Gretton.
Weather was warm and sunny.We welcomed two new walkers Phyll & Janet .

Turning left into a lovely close of terraced bungalows with country gardens took us off the noisy main road into the quiet of the countryside with views of the Welland Valley all the way to the railway tunnel and little  spinney before the climb up the hill into Gretton.
We decided to stop here at the top to eat our lunch and look at the fabulous view.

After lunch we had to tackle a rape field where the crop had fallen over the path,which was hard going .
Onwards a short way on paths to the recreation ground in Gretton where we went into the social club and were allowed to replenish our water bottles and have a short sit down inside.
Cricket was soon to start.We left them to it and continued alongside the very nice recreation ground with tennis courts lots of seats and children's swings.

Along a track that  took us to the road where we did a very short piece of road walking.
Crossing the road to the left another track took us to a railway crossing after which we followed the footpath back to Rockingham.

Walk took longer than expected due to the hot weather and more stops in the shade needed.
Arriving back approx 3pm.

Thanks to Judith E for organising and leading this walk on the hottest day of the year so far.Judith also provided picture and this report.

Thanks also to Vonnie Mc for acting as back marker.
