Gathering together on the car park it looks like we are in for some good weather

 

We head out past the pub . . .

An enclosed path brings us out onto a lane . . .

 

where we soon pass a lovely cottage

 

Norman should be justly proud of this great shot

 

Descending a steep, narrow path Bill takes up the role of back marker . . .

Crossing the golf course, heading for Read Hall . . .

 

we meet an unusual turnstile - anyone got an oil can?

 

After walking through Read Park we enjoy an excellent fireside lunch at the pub
