The Denby Dale Round - 14th June 2014

18 walkers started the walk (4 visitors and 14 members). The walk started from Denby Dale on a warm, cloudy and muggy day. We walked to Upper Cumberworth, home of Roy Turner and when we realized there was no refreshments Roy found himself in the stocks found in the church grounds.

We continued on through Skelmanthorpe, passed the Kirklees Light Railway, said goodbye to Roy and Ian and then took a detour in Blacker Wood before loosing another visitor with a sore foot and continued on to the White Horse Inn  at Emley.

A wonderful old pub with 6 real ales and we spent an hour sampling the beer before continuing on our way. We continued on over the packhorse bridge to Clayton West and on through the park with the iron cow and back to our starting point at the railway station at Denby Dale.

It was a great walk in the very hilly area to the West of Barnsley on a very warm and muggy day. Well done and thanks Chris and Maggie for leading.
