Monk Wood and Barlow (13th February)

Walk Report – Tuesday 13th February 2018

On a damp cold morning 12 brave people set off for a 5 mile walk from St Andrews Church warmed by the hot drinks and toast provided at the church. Our route took us across Sindelfingen Park then onto footpaths to Cowley, Lees Common and up into Monk Wood with views across to Barlow. There were several quite muddy sections on the way but by now the rain had eased and the going underfoot was easier. We continued past Monkwood Farm and then followed Barlow Brook to Lee Bridge where we stopped for coffee. Our return route was via Gateland Lane, Barlow Lees and Cowley Hall emerging back at ‘Teletubby Hill’ from where it was only a short walk back to the car park. We all arrived back safely after an enjoyable walk despite the muddy conditions underfoot and the odd shower of rain! Steve Sadler
