Cartledge and Holmesfield (11th August 2016)

The above walk was led by Richard Armstrong,  and the pic came from Graham Gill. This was the last of the Summer 2016 walks.

11th August: I have just got home after a really nice Richard Armstrong – led walk from Holmesfield, which of course means that the last half of the walk back will probably be all uphill! Here is his report:

16 walkers met in Holmesfield Village Hall car park on a cool overcast evening.  We walked through Holmesfield to Cowley Lane, and across to Cartledge.  Then downhill towards Millthorpe through a thistle meadow before edging right for Horsleygate and up to Lidgate. We then went towards Fanshawe Gate before cutting across fields towards Holmesfield Road.  In the final field we met a group of curious young cows. The situation was made more exciting as the leader missed a fork in the path in the gathering gloom, meaning that we had a gate to climb over rather than the easier stile.  We all arrived safely back at the car park.
