Fifteen walkers took part today starting from Clapham village centre and after a steep climb up Thwaite Lane track we eventually reached Robin Proctors scar where we paused while the leader recounted the legend of how the scar got its name. From here a short walk over fields took us to Norber erratics where we had elevenses while members took photographs of the boulders balancing on limestone.
