Four Parishers Walk 7th August

07 Aug

Four Parishes walk

We started off in Monyash the first parish and followed the Limestone Way to Flagg, parish number two where we encountered just a few drops of rain whilst drinking our coffee. Then a gradual climb before dropping down to Chelmorton where the guide notes suggested climbing a big hill to see the great view and not stopping at the pub there! Amazingly the group followed me up to the ancient burial site where sure enough there was a panoramic view and so we decided to have lunch in the sun before retracing our steps back to Chelmorton.
Past the old village spring now and up the hill and down to Taddington our fourth parish for some welcome refreshment at the peaceful Queens head, the old high street having been bypassed some years ago. Up the last hill now- the Jarnett and back to Flagg, where afterwards on the last stretch back the real excitement started, at least for some, a caver metamorphosing from rubber suit via birthday suit to driving suit. After that we got caught in milking rush hour before returning to Monyash.
