Saturday 6th April Steppingley Spring Cafe walks


Sue & Tony R about to start their walk

The longer walk went through Kingshoe Wood, crossed the motorway, then carried on through Town Mead & Poorshills Wood before reaching the road which we followed towards Water End where we turned right to cross the field containing a large dew pond. We arrived at the Greensand Ridge walk which we had intended to follow through Briar Stockings, however it had been churned up by tractors & was impassible. Therefore continued across the field towards Higher Berry End. We turned right to meet the end of the bridleway leading to Cobbler's Lane. Here we turned right & then left past the very securely locked buildings on our left. We stopped in a wood for our coffee break.

Soon afterwards we turned right to cross the motorway. Just before Lodge Farm we turned right, then left & right again to join Rectory Road which led down to Steppingley Church. Here we found many other members who had been on the shorter walk.

The cakes after TRC had helped themselves.
After sampling the food on offer we all departed going our different ways back to our transport home after having an enjoyable & interesting day.
