Commentary

An excellent walk today, offering lots to see in a part of the world which was new for many LDWA members. Great weather fantastic views.   Plus a very welcome lunch at the cafe just below the cat and Fiddle pub (currently closed for refurbishment)

Thanks to Roger Hand for doing a lot of the organisation
