Sunday 3 August 2015. Life continued for the Fenland Ramblers whilst I was away on holiday in the Peak District with a regular 7½ mile group walk from Wood Walton. Phil has kindly sent me a few pictures and the following report to post on the Group’s blog.
“9 of us turned up for the walk on a rather hot and sticky day. We headed off for the villages of Great Raveley and Upwood taking a short coffee break on the way. We then entered the delightful Lady’s Wood, an ancient coppice that had been largely replanted in 1951. After leaving the wood we proceeded into a field of wheat which unfortunately was being harvested. In order to escape the immense amount of dust being thrown up we retreated to the edge of the wood to take an early lunch. After lunch we trekked through what seemed like endless wheat fields returning to our base”.
