Eleven of us turned up at Edgefield Chuch today to walk 8 miles using public footpaths joined together by permissive paths on the Stody Estate.
These permissive paths will no longer be permissive after 31st January, and there were notices every so often reminding us of that fact.
We started off with some lane walking through undulating countryside stopping for lunch at a church on the estate with pretty views.
We followed field paths, some muddy tracks, and eventually saw the remains – the tower – of a church, which Phil told us was left over after the vicar decided to move the church brick by brick nearer the village! But decided against moving the tower and built a new one.
We had fine sunny weather, although windy in places, and blue skies.
