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.

April Ramble, Brookend – Purton – Sharpness

Thursday 24th April
Ramblers Group

Brookend – Purton – Sharpness

led by Angela & Jane (see a copy of the poster here)

We will drive to the Lammastide Inn, Brookend, (GL13 9SF) from where we will begin our 5½ mile ramble. Good views of the Severn as we descend into Purton, where we will visit the little Church of St. John. Then we take the towpath alongside the canal, with a detour to see the Purton Hulks on the riverbank and the sight of the old Severn Railway bridge. Leaving the canal by the Marina at Sharpness, we make our way back across bridges and fields. Easy walking with just a couple of inclines, and about 12 stiles.

Lunch at The Lammastide Inn. We can order food before we start off on our walk, but they require numbers so please advise Angela on 832911 if you are coming.

18 members enjoyed a 5.5 mile ramble from the hamlet of Brookend, across fields to Purton where we visited the little church of St. John the Evangelist, before walking alongside the Gloucester – Sharpness Canal.  We saw the Purton Hulks and the remains of the old Severn Railway Bridge which was destroyed in October 1960.  We crossed back over the canal at Sharpness Marina and returned to The Lammastide Inn for our lunch.

March Ramble, Coates – Tarlton

Thursday 23rd March
Ramblers Group

Coates – Tarlton

led by Mary Saunders (see a copy of the poster here)

A fairly comfortable ramble both in distance and terrain. We will go over the railway to Coates Church and meander through the woodland eventually picking up the path towards Tarlton and back down the slope to the pub.
Lunch after at The Tunnel House, menu choices to be made at the pub before setting off. (There is a website for a preview but menus were not up-to-date).

After a wet start to the morning, we were lucky that the rain had stopped and the sun came out during the morning.  We walked 4.5 miles from Tunnel House, near Coates, across fields and along muddy woodland paths eventually picking up part of the Macmillan Way until we reached the village of Tarlton.  We had a look inside the tiny little church there, before returning across the fields to the pub which provided some excellent food.

February Ramble, Woodchester – Selsley

Thursday 23rd February
Ramblers Group

Woodchester – Selsley

led by Allison Hope (see a copy of the poster here)

Our February ramble was a 5 mile walk starting in North Woodchester.  We walked through fields and woodland leading up on Selsley Common, where the strong winds from ‘Storm Doris’ made the going quite difficult, until we descended again through the Vineyards leading down to Woodchester Park and South Woodchester.  From there we returned to our starting point and then drove back to the Britannia Inn, Nailsworth for our lunch.
