Report for seasonal stagger 23rd Dec 2017

Welcome blue sky accompanied us for much of the walk up Porter Brook and into the wind towards Whitestones above Redmires reservoir. Towards the high point we had a break in the shelter of a wall, before the usual often boggy path down to the reservoir. Here we temporarily mislaid one member of the party who had strode ahead and importantly was carrying someone else’s sandwiches. Luckily person and sandwiches rejoined the party later and before lunch by Wyming Brook. A diversion down the delightful path alongside the brook to Rivelin reservoir was almost immediately followed by a path back up the hill to the three Merry lads where surprisingly, we mislaid no one. A short stretch of beech wood led to Redmires conduit and back to the start. Much tea and various food contributions were then consumed at my house by 15 (off and on) walkers, I think 5 mountain bikers (who mentioned burbage and longshaw and 28miles but not sure where else they got to), and another 8 or so who came to join in the social tea drinking event and help eat the mince pies. Thanks to all for your company, your help serving tea and your food contributions. A very socially occasion. Happy Christmas!
