Rogation Day Walk 2016
Lead by Ken Green, 24 walkers set off from the Queens Head along footpaths, bridleways, roads, and some tracks only allowed on this one day every year. There were a variety of obstacles to be tackled on the off-piste parts of the route. This included a number of streams that had to be crossed (resulting in few muddy/wet boots!) and a tricky barbed wire fence crossing with the aid of Ken’s trusty custom made ladder.
After a well deserved break at the Fancott, some walkers retired and called it a day,while some new Bog Trotters joined us for the afternoon session, which was a much simpler walk with no obstacles. After 10.5 miles, 21 weary walkers arrived back the Queens Head. Fine weather and good company made this an enjoyable day’s walking.
A full report and additional photographs will be in the next issue of the Chalgrave News. Next years walk will take place on 21 May 2017.
