The first ramble of 2019 took place yesterday ably led by Alan Carr. Setting off from the lovely village of Croston, the group trekked across open countryside through to the village of Eccleston, and then onward in a circular route to complete the 8 mile ramble. Although the day was cold, it was clear, but the recent rain made the going very heavy underfoot with lots of mud in places. An encounter with a group of horses, one being very bad tempered, gave a little more excitement than we had bargained for, but the least said about that here, the better! Thanks to Alan for organising the ramble and lunch.The next ramble is on Thursday 7th February, to West Kirby. Details to follow.
