Unthank and Barlow (26th May 2016)

Thursday 26th May led by Karen Brightmore

18 walkers gathered at the bottom of Millthorpe lane on a warm evening. After crossing the ford at Millthorpe we made our way to Unthank and then crossed the fields into Meekfield wood. The path was very muddy and we had to weave round one or two fallen trees but made it through and up the steep hill to Moorhall farm. After crossing Rumbling Street we made our way through undulating fields to some quite slippy stone steps, but all managed to get down without a fall!
We had to walk a short distance along the Barlow road but fortunately no cars came past and at the Cruck Barn Holiday property we turned down the fields past Crowhole Reservoir. Just a short pull up to another Cruck Barn and farm where there was a particularly vicious dog, but fortunately it was on a lead! Then it was downhill all the way passing through Jonnygate on our way back to the ford and cars. It had been quite muddy and slippy in places, but we all got back with only our boots muddy!
