Twelve members enjoyed a 4.2 mile walk led by Mike Harvey.
We started from near The Hare and Hounds at Westonbirt, and we walked alongside the Polo club, meeting some of the horses before walking alongside the perimeter of the old Arboretum.
We took the Macmillan Way through the Silk Wood and then crossed fields to reach the pretty hamlet of Willesley, before returning via the grounds of Westonbirt School.
Thankfully the hot weather of the last week had abated and we enjoyed cool breezy conditions, ideal for our walk.
