The March walk was in Cheshire’s Peckforton hills starting from the attractive village of Bulkeley on the Nantwich to Wrexham road.
Five members and three ladies attended. The weather was poor, it snowed heavily for the first hour of the walk and later we were lashed with hail driven by a raw wind.
The walk took us passed rugged sandstone outcrops and through lofty pinewoods. It took in Bulkeley Hill and the aptly named Raw Head, the highest point on the Sandstone trail at 227 metres, with panoramic views both east and west. We also passed through the village of Burwardsley where the candle factory is located.
It was an invigorating 6 mile, 3 hour walk, which it was generally agreed we would repeat in better weather.
We had a pleasant lunch at The Bickerton Poacher getting home at about 3pm
