Nineteen of us set out in glorious autumn sunshine from Roe Cross to explore Tameside's Pennine foothills.
After walking above the old quarry and through the old rifle range we stopped for coffee and home made banana scones in Tameside country park.
Lunch was taken by Devils bridge before climbing to Arnfield and then down to the Bull's Head in Tintwistle for a drink in the sun, then through Swallows wood, which may disappear if the by-pass is built.
Linda as usual was keeping up her immaculate appearance by skirting the boggy Tameside trail and employing John G as her Mule to keep her feet dry!!
