Well, we struck lucky with the weather today didn’t we, dry and just a nice temperature.
Nineteen of us were able to make this year’s annual “out of parish walk” which was around the Lickeys and surrounding countryside.
I hope those who came found the look at the WW1 gun butts of interest, as well as the 14th century St Michael’s church, Bittell reservoir and steam pump house. I hope you all enjoyed the walk too of course, especially the lack of stiles!
Thanks for your company.
Just a reminder that next Saturday 29th April, starting at 10am, there will be a talk and walk on Public Rights of Way starting at the Swallows Nest. In the talk part I hope to shed some light on the confusing subject of Public Rights of Way and some of the problems they create. At least that’s the plan! The walk part is about 2.5 miles with some road walking, to point out the paths that are Rights of Way , those that may be Rights of Way and those that are permissive. Its all very confusing but might become clearer on the day…
If you do plan on coming I have attached three files to this email. Two are maps of the Public Rights of Way (or some of them?) around the part of Romsley and Hunnington that the walk will cover and which might be useful to have to hand to see exactly where the different paths are. The third is a “statement” covering several of Romsley’s paths. I’ll explain what statements are all about on the day!
Tuesday 27th December 1.00PM
Meet at Millennium Arch, Barnt Green
We would like to invite you to join us on our Christmas walk.
We head out of Barnt Green to Withybed Green, then along the canal and back over Cobley Hill.
We end at Cafe Morso for a well deserved mulled wine or hot chocolate.
As with all sponsorship, this does not represent automatic endorsement by the Parish Council. Severn Trent’s sponsorship of Romstock does not affect our stance regarding the Resilience Project. This is reflected in the official response to planning which can be found on our website.
Romsley Walk 16th April 2016.
We had a good parish walk on Saturdayday, 20 of us, – in spite of the snow storm earlier in the morning!
The weather, although cool turned out to be very nice.
Excellent views from the top of Clent Hills to the snow covered Cotswolds and Long Myndd and to the Black mountains in the distance.
Only two of the party succumbed to the smell of the bacon butties as we passed by Nimmings cafe, although Nina and I were soon back to join them!
