Evening Walk - a Mooch around Melling

One of the good things about the club evening and daytime mid-week walks is being in unfamiliar areas. This walk was typical of that when Sandra and Tony Atkinson led a walk around Melling in the Lune Valley. A walk of contrasting weather moods, it started off with a lovely rainbow, rain in the first part of the walk, and ended with a pleasant evening with lovely light. A drink in the Lunesdale Arms in Tunstall rounded off an interesting evening. Thanks Sandra and Tony

Sue Blamire and her family have been out collecting their 80's. She says "Not only did we achieve our 80 ardechois km, but I've also 'collected' 84 poteaux, all done by Weds".
