Walk 164 - [5.26 miles] - Aymestrey

OS201 OS137 garmin

This was to be almost a repeat of Walk 10 but with a different ending.

13 of us set off from the layby near Aymestry heading north eastwards towards Yatton where we crossed the A4110 and headed up the muddy fields reaching Ballsgate Common where we did a sharp left and headed back and re-crossed the A4110; crossing the fields near Yatton Court and up through Pokehouse Wood on Yatton Hill where we stopped for a coffee break.

Heading across the fields near Yatton Court

Amazing how these trees hang on to the rocky ground

We then walked along the forestry path through School Wood and eventually took a left turn emerging into the fields below Ladyacre Plantation and descended to the lane near to Yatton and finally back to our cars. A pleasant muddy walk of about 5¼ miles, and our thanks to Margaret for getting us round - we hope Ian H-C soon gets his muscles sorted out and gets back to us - we miss him!
