6th March. Hartshorne

20 happy strollers set off from The Bulls Head in Hartshorne at 10 o'clock proceeding down the hill past the Admiral Rodney pub and turning left at the Mill Wheel. Yes a lot of our walking group navigation is done by public houses! Despite the rapid thawing of several inches of snow and a lot of rain the previous night the going wasn't as difficult as we had all expected. Our route took us past Carver rocks and through many small woods and plenty of open country with some good views which were enjoyed by all. Most of the walking was done on footpaths between The A514 and a B5006. The weather had been particularly kind to us, in fact we enjoyed some sunshine for the second half of the 6 1/2 mile walk and returned early to the pub where we all enjoyed good fare, good ale, if little cold for my preference, and as always great company.
