14th December 2011 – Ashburton walk

 Led by Ernie

On a cold, showery day a hardy group of 17 Walkers led by Ernie set off from the Victoria Inn for the annual pre-Christmas country walk around the area.

After dodging the cars and the streams running across the road we arrived at the river crossing. After a group meeting chaired by Ernie it was decided to carry on across the river and through the woodlands.

Despite a very wet, boggy, leafy terrain having to be negotiated through short but heavy downfalls of rain and hail everyone arrived back safely at the Victoria Inn to be joined by nine other members of the group for a superb lunch.

(Description above was kindly penned by Val as I did not do the walk myself.)
