Walk: A pleasant walk across field and country lanes
Start Point: The White Bull, Wrea Green Grid Reference: SD 397 315
Distance: 4.5 miles Ascent: Little
Time: 1.5 hrs    
Weather: Rain to start, clearing to a dry finish with some sun
Comments: 13 summer evening walkers met for the start of the walk at 6.30pm at The Grapes in Wrea Green.

Within the first few yards, it began to rain - hard. We followed the Big Black Cloud over increasingly wet fields and lanes until eventually the sun broke through and we were rewarded by a beautiful bright rainbow. By this time we were drying nicely so did not start looking for the pot of gold as the pub beckoned. A good meal was an excellent end to a damp walk, but nevertheless, congratulations to Gina and Daphne on this successful new initiative, even though the returning number was 10 as the other 3 had found their own way (we hope) home.
