Scroll down to see photos of the short walk, the long walk and the meal
The party leaving Ferrari's at the start of the walk
A little mist at first . . .
but the sun burnt it off
The obligatory farm yard mud
Some of the thirty-eight walkers on the Christmas Meal walk
Two observers . . .
but not for long
Fighting a battle with some gorse . . .
but still smiling
Catching up time
The steepest part of the walk
Over the bridge and . . .
up the other side
Mince pie time
Diversification - Ewe should try it sometime - the milk
Only four more fields to cross before it's turkey and pudding time
Another muddy track - but it is winter after all
Who can these people be . . .
Why! It's the eight mile walkers taking tea in the sun
Jeanette - with muddy white socks - leads the carol singing on the return to Ferrari's
In the grounds of Ferrari's Restaurant
What's a little bit of mud
Al and Paco
Misty over Longridge Fell
Leaving Gibbon Bridge Hotel
Stained glass panel at Giles Farm
John tackles an awkward stile . . .
A nice cuppa at Little Town Dairy
Nice and sunny as we get back
Anyone for water?
The bar was busy too!
Making new friends
Get ahead, get a hat
Terry - the meal organiser - and Diane his wife
It's all smiles at this table
Madam Butterfly - the uninvited guest
