Due to further snow and the reported state of the car park at St. Andrews Church tonight's AGM has been cancelled. The new date is Friday 16th March, same venue and same time 7.30p.m..
18 walkers met at a new venue for us, The Griffin at Pitsford on a cold cloudy morning with a bit of cold wind. Not much sign of Spring springing.
We drove to the reservoir car park on the outskirts of the village but unfortunately one car load drove to the main car park. Oops!
However we were soon re-united and walked around the perimeter of the reservoir starting on the North side.
This is a good Winter walk as the going is good hard surface all the way round. The only drawback as with most reservoir walks is that you can see hjow far you have to go.
After crossing the causeway and being informed we were more than two thirds of the way round we had a very welcome stop for our banana break.
On arrival back at the pub we were joined by Gervase F. The food came quite quickly and the bowls of chips which accompanied the sandwiches were pronounced excellent.
A venue worthy of further usage.
Thanks to Robert and Rosemary W for organising and leading a wonderful Winter walk.
'Our walk started out from the picturesque High Street, Kimbolton, Cambridgeshire and went in a southerly
direction to Pertenhall, Bedfordshire to return by a route through Stonely to
Kimbolton centre. It was about 5.5 miles
long and we had 24 people taking part which is an excellent turnout for a
We were fortunate to have a bright and sunny day - a little
nippy- and the 'going was soft - heavy in places'. Once out of Kimbolton and at
a higher level the views opened up all around.
We stopped for a break at Pertenhall Church, a pretty and
peaceful place with drifts of snowdrops nearby.
En route we passed lively young piglets, several
long-abandoned cars and a paddock full of muddy free-range hens.
The return leg was mainly downhill and after Stonely took us
past a waterfall on the river Kym, before returning to Kimbolton High Street where some people stayed and ate at the Saddle PH and others at the nearby
cafe. All reports heard were good'
Thanks to Ian and Carna B for organising and leading this walk
and for providing this report and pictures below.
Wild Boar? No, just a little irate.
Free range? I'd rather have a nice warm barn.
For Sale. One only one careful owner. Never been raced or rallied.
When I grow up I want to be Niagara Falls.
