Mileaters Walk on 8th September 2020.
The first mileaters for many months prompted a good turnout of 18, all raring to go. A short socially distanced meet on the green followed by a drive to Evershot and by 10 am we were ready for the off. At least everyone was apart from the leader who somehow got confused about directions from the start. Phil wittily pointed out this was some what of a record even for a walk led by Stuart. Much laughter.
Things improved after that and we kept a steady pace to Lewcombe church where we planned to have our coffee. Fate intervened since we met the lovely Jean who kindly gave us a talk on the Church, fairies and times gone by. The Church is well worth a visit and the circular stained glass window is striking.
Of the mini assault course and stream crossing we will say little other than it was accomplished without anyone getting wet and it was quite fun.
Melbury Osmond is a lovely village and leads onto the park and it's avenue of Oaks and Beech trees. An ideal picnic spot beneath the boughs and time to rest and enjoy the tranquillity before a short distance back to our cars.
An excellent walk and such good fun after all this time.
