The route through Knutsford?
A pleasant path through the woods.
One of the many wood sculptures.
Not quite blue skies, but at least it's dry!
"Are these really mine?"
That was a quick change from the waterproof!
One of the smaller residences on route.
It's good to smile.
Report and photos thanks to Phil.
Walk stats: Distance: 11 miles. Climb: 100'. (I'm sure it must have been more than metre!).
Time: Just over 5 hours 18 minutes (the time between the first and last photos).
Group: Phil, Tim and Annie.
The weather forecast was for rain later in the day, alas it came sooner than expected and by lunch time the spots were beginning to fall, and as the photos show they turned into a little more than spots by the time we got back to Knutsford.
11 miles after a wrong turn and a detour around a jungle. Started at about 64 metres and climbed at the highest to just over 65 metres. Annie, Tim and Phil walked for 5 1/2 hours including a lunch break. It was a walk in two parts- a very pleasant morning walk of 3 hours in shirts followed by a very very wet afternoon walk. You can see the difference in the before and after photographs. The start from the middle of Knutsford was very different from our usual starts in the countryside. We encountered some birds, especially of the large wooden variety, and some very interesting scarecrows and a bear! Some of the houses we saw were interesting but we decided that they would take too much looking after.
The usual standard of report will be resuming shortly when Martyn is once again walking.
