Report on ‘Seasonal Stagger’ on Sun 19th December 2021

At 10am on a rather misty Sunday morning, a cheery group of 10 of us gathered outside our home, for the traditional pre-Christmas Seasonal Stagger. Leaving the houses of High Storrs behind, we dropped steeply down into the Porter Clough valley, to then follow it out into countryside past the tree freshly decorated with baubles [another Christmas tradition] pausing at Oliver’s Bridge, to eventually reach the convenient collection of benches near the top for our coffee stop. Then it was across muddy fields, before skirting around the Lady Canning plantation, and heading for the Norfolk Arms for hot mulled wine. Duly fortified, we then followed the Limb valley gently downhill for a while, before cutting across to Ringinglow Road , the houses of Bents Green and finally the High Storrs allotments. Unfortunately, wanting to be cautious and safe around Covid and Omicron, the expected gathering inside our house for the usual tea and cakes after the walk was cancelled this year. But thank you all for your good company and conversation on the walk [of approx 8 miles] and Paul for leading it.
There are several of today’s photos on the CMC walking WhatsApp.
