This month’s walk was an attempt on the summit of “The Cloud” (height 343 metres) situated to the north of Congleton. Ten members met for the start of the walk which started at Timbersbrook, just below the hill.
The weather was very warm and sunny and the cool breezes as we got higher were much appreciated, as were the fine views on the way up and when we stopped for a rest at the top. We came down via the other (northerly) side of the hill and followed the Staffordshire Way to the Bridestones, a Neolithic chambered cairn, eventually circling round the start – a total distance of about 4 miles.
Afterwards we had a very pleasant lunch at the Church House, Buglawton.
