Metapic Walk (3rd March 2018)

Saturday March 3rd: Metapic Walk

10 legs took part, which sounds better that just three walkers plus dog. To be expected really, as the area was /is still feeling the effects of the Beast from the East. When we met at the Unstone Village Hall, we decided to make it a shorter route, and avoid the Summerly part, because of possible drifting, however after a very pleasant chatty walk from the Hall to Metapic, and through Frith Woods, the sound of lots of families enjoying stedgeing on the bank up to Summerley Heights kept us going. We all wished, and probably did Archie too, that we had bought sledges with us to join in the fun! A walk back along the lane to the bottom part of Apperknowle green was the chosen route instead of the cross field path to Half Acre Lane, then back home. Probably the 4 plus miles felt more like 6, but as Jane and I had walked the extra 1.5 miles from Unstone, we felt like we’d walked 9!
