Walk: Walmsley Bridge, Brock Bottom, Lower Trotter Hill, Higher Barker, Cliftons
Start Point: The Green Man, Inglewhite Grid Reference: SD 546 399 
Distance: 5.75 miles Ascent: 385 feet
Time: 3 hours
Weather: A wet start but it  faired up soon after the start of the walk. A cold breeze.

The participants in the walk used field paths and quiet lanes.  There were numerous stiles, many of them slippery.  Leaving the village of Inglewhite the route was over fields to Walmsley Bridge with more field paths alongside the River Brock to Brock Bottom.  After crossing the River Brock there was a steepish ascent to Scotch Green Lane before continuing along field paths back to Inglewhite.

Thirty people took part in this walk whilst another six chose a shorter route.

Taking a breather at Brock Bottom – many moons ago,
near to this spot was a mill where Files were manufactured.
