We parked by the river and 11 of us headed east along Rosemary Lane and then climbed Church Hill. At the summit, and pausing for breath we took in the panorama of the Teme Valley before we followed the track to Woodhead and then, after crossing the A4113 we joined the bridlepath that dropped down through Coleswood.

It was near to Kinton Farm that Norma developed a bit of a list to starboard, and so she and Pauline waited whilst Mike did the final ½ mile along the road and returned to the rescue whilst the rest of us continued across the fields and stiles and back to our start point.

Just over 4 miles, and the first time we finished with less walkers than we started!
