Rumbling Street and Cartledge (29th June 2017)

Thursday 29th June

Despite dark clouds we had a lovely walk led by the knowledgable David Blackburn. The views were good and some lovely wild flowers. A Kingfisher darted by but sadly only spotted by our leader!There were 9 of us on last evenings walk  and after 2 days of continuous rain , it had stopped , though was dull and threatening. The long grass and crops, battered down over the paths in several places , made our walk of  under 4 miles rather more difficult than planned. Walk started eventfully – just a few yards from our starting point at Millthorpe, the leader went flat on his back  crossing a slippery footbridge – very stiff , but basically undamaged this morning!. Our route took us to Barlow Woodseats Hall .on to Rumbling Street and back through Highlightly and Cartledge.
