This report is take three – first written during the middle of the night on 9 June and obviously half asleep and not functioning! Tried again but did not post next day. Been away for a week and only with tablet and intermittent wifi. Enough excuses I hear you say.
Ten of us enjoyed a climb from Low Bradfield to Onesmoor, crossing numerous stiles and fields. The coffee stop was just before a giant field of rapeseed that had been blown flat by recent strong winds. Then we walked on to High Bradfield for lunch in the churchyard where the various benches afforded great views of the valley below, Derwent Edge and Win Hill on the horizon. A brief visit round and over the top of the Anglo Saxon motte and bailey followed with a sighting of a fledgling woodpecker stationary on a tree. After a descent through woods and a walk out to the moors below Agden Rocher we headed down and round Agden Reservoir and back to the cars. The mini mean machines clocked up 7.4 miles, but 7.6 if you include the walk to the café and back where 4 had a well deserved cuppa. Thank you to all for your company and politics was left off the agenda!
