Walk: Ramble through the forest
Start Point: 2m west Dunsop Bridge Grid Reference: SD 633 511
Distance: 8.5 miles Ascent: <1,000 feet
Time: 5 hours    
Weather: Although there was still a little snow on the ground it was a lovely warm day, much appreciated after all the really cold weather we've had.
Comments: There was 25 of us, a good turn out, ( the first chance to walk of all the Easter chocs for some ).
Everybody enjoyed it especially when we stopped at Dunsop Bridge for ice cream before the final leg back
