Fifteen members drove to the National Star Centre at Ullenwood and Mary took us on a 6.8 mile walk across Charlton Kings Common, Leckhampton Hill and on to Seven Springs before returning via the pretty village of Coberley.

Although quite long, the walk was fairly easy with only a few stiles. The weather was warm and mainly dry, perfect for walking. 

We returned to the Star Centre for our meal.

12 members drove to The Daneway Inn for a 7 mile ramble, led by Mary Saunders.  The route took in the village of Edgeworth with it’s church and Manor House.  Mary told us about the ‘Unwrapping of an Egyptian Mummy’ at Edgeworth Manor House in 1851.  An interesting tale!  We walked through woodland and meadows with some steep sections before walking up the valley opposite Pinbury Park House. The route eventually brought us back to Sapperton and then along the old canal side back to The Daneway.
