Walk 183 [6.1 miles] - Nordy Bank and Brown Clee

OS201 OS137 garmin

This was Judy's first time as leader of the walk, and we met up at a car parking area near Nordy Bank. The bright warm sunshine was a bit of a shock as we got ready, and very quickly we were taking layers off (and quite soon afterwards putting them back on again).

We set off climbing up into the sun alongside Nordy Bank then turned right to Green Shutters. En route a large brown ball shaped mushroom/fungus was admired.
A sharp left took us up past The Sands, then it was a right turn onto the Jack Mytton Way where we eventually stopped for a coffee enjoying fantastic views across to Wenlock Edge and beyond.

We emerged to take in the breathtaking views before continuing to CLee Burf, passing the Navigational Relay Station and making a short descent beforeturning sharp right and stopping for lunch above Clee Liberty. It's probably best to skip the part about the ankle deep boggy bits.

By the time we finished lunch it was getting decidedly chilly, and we resumed with gloves and hats on as we skirted round Nordy Bank and made the final descent to the cars. Many thanks to JUdy for taking us round today.
