Stroud Morning Walk 10th July 2019

This walk led by Pauline took us up above Cold Hill and on to the ridge above The Great Hanger. The way up was interesting with fields full of sheep and one set of large steps to negotiate. We had a stop near the top to take on more oxygen and a few sips of water, with a promise of a coffee stop on the way back down,  The stop had an impressive view over towards Butser Hill as well as a bench seat. The seat was erected by local subscription in memory of a local lad who lost his life in Afghanistan. Beutifully situated with flowering plants all around it was the ideal stop. We eventually carried on past Lythe Farm, the tiny Stroud Church (erected in the year of Queen Victori''s Jubilee in 1887) and then on to Stroud for a lunch in The Seven Stars. A lovely walk of about 3.5 miles.
