2015 memories

The Eastern Side of the Goyt (1/11/2015)

12 LDWA members out yesterday on the walk led by Bob (well to be pedantic, 11 members and a prospective member from Nottingham - Mark). Good to see Ned and the stalwarts, Peter, Duncan, Richard and not least Steve whom we welcome to the email list.  We were joined by Bev, Glenys and Pete and…

Visit to Dunham (30/07/2015 - evening walk)

An enjoyable summer evening walk on 30th July around Bowdon, Bridgewater Canal and Dunham Massey was enjoyed by 7 members plus a well behaved spaniel. Some improvisation was required to join the Canal but it all worked out as planned! Michael

Who put those forts there? (18/07/2015)

This was a prehistoric themed walk, starting and finishing at Helsby and linking up some of the Iron Age hill forts that feature in the landscape of this part of Cheshire.  Quentin had intended it to commemorate his 70th birthday; unfortunately as things turned out, he was unable to lead on the…

Off to find a Reservoir (21/06/2015)

I think the 11 of us enjoyed the walk today. Met our objective of finding a reservoir! Weather was breezy along Rushup Edge and apart from a few droplets of rain was fine for walking with the sun appearing on a few occasions (not at lunch time though).  The final climb back to Rushup Edge was the…

Where Wizards walk in Winter (25/01/2015)

Sunday dawned cold but bright with the promise of some Winter sun am, and rain late pm. 20 hardy souls met at Alderley Edge, Sth M/c regulars plus some welcome new faces, as well as visitors from Staffs and Yorkshire groups. A stiff little climb onto the Edge, with the first talk of the day from…

Xmas Walk

There was a good number for the walks last Sunday, including Pat and Ray from Staffs Group, sorry that the weather put one or two off.  Quentin had certainly chosen a muddy route and this leader failed to keep to his time schedule.  The main group arrived over an hour late for the carvery.  It…
