Broadmayne b

Friday 13th January 2017

After the recent well supported 25th Anniversary AGM where some 42 founding and present members attended, 13 hardy souls and 3 canine friends dismissed the superstitions of Friday 13th and embarked upon the first walk of 2017, under Nick Priddle's stewardship.

From Broadmayne we climbed steadily via Osmington Drove to reach the South Dorset Ridgeway above Sutton Poyntz. Fortunately here we turned east with the biting norwesterly now behind us (well, nearly) and were soon able to enjoy the views to the south from the ridge above the Osmington White Horse out over Weymouth Bay to Portland.

Some relief from the cold wind was enjoyed as we dropped past the site of "Pokes Well" of Roman origin, to the imposing Poxwell Manor dating from 1613 and the nearby 13th Century tithe barn.

Two more hills - some disagreement with our worthy leader as to what constituted a hill - and we were finally descending into Broadmayne for a well-earned repast at the friendly and efficient "Black Dog".

The wind and the at times very sticky conditions made for a testing outing, but at least there were no cobwebs left afterwards.
