Stow on the Wold 22-25/05/2015

Jack and Ken organised a YHA weekend at Stow on the wold 22-25/05/2015
Jack wrote..................For the late May Bank Holiday this year we went to Stow on the Wold in the Cotswolds. Twenty one of us from Stockport joined seven from SMLG in London for what turned out to be a very convivial and enjoyable weekend.

On the Saturday the London group went on a brewery visit to the Hook Norton Brewery. Most of the rest of us drove to Chipping Campden and walked along the first section of the Cotswold Way to Broadway. After about an hours stop in the village where some of us took refreshments, we walked back to Chipping by a different route.
Sunday saw the bulk of us walking to Lower Slaughter where we had orgasmic ice creams from the old mill. We then continued to Bourton on the Water for an extended lunch break. Eventually we grew tired of the crowds and made our way back to Stow.
Many thanks to Ken for booking the trip, we hope to organise a similar event next year. Jack

Walk Kinder 17/05/2015

17/05/2015 Les H. led a walk from Chunal to Kinder Downfall then Hayfield then Little Hayfield back to Chunal. 13 miles. A cold and windy day on the tops but much warmer and calmer in the valleys.

Les wrote
A group of 17 left the lane by Plainsteads at 10.15am in fine weather (despite varying forecasts of inclement weather). We ascended Mill Hill in good visibility, paused for elevenes, then clambered up onto the edge of the Kinder plateau. Lunch was taken at an unusually quiet Kinder Downfall before proceeding to and crossing Red Brook, whereupon a slanting path below Kinder Low took us down finally over green fields to the lane leading to the toilets by the Bowden Bridge car park. A short final break was taken here.

Later approaching Middle Moor we veered west down to Little Hayfield, passing the long abandoned Park Hall outdoor pool. Although still just about fine, we gave the tempting inn a miss, and took on our final climb of the day slanting across below Lantern Pike. Gladly reaching flatter ground we followed farm lanes and over Matley Moor eventually reaching our cars at about 4.45pm, still to feel any rain at all.With the originally intended starting point of the car park at the Grouse pub not used (as the pub has sadly closed) we covered about 11 miles in total.

Thanks to all those who participated.
