A wet trip along part of Laureen’s ride

Seven intrepid walkers braved the rain to undertake a delightful walk around part of Laureen’s ride.

049

We set off down the path

014

with occasional views of lush meadows

015

as we walked the wooded pathway

016
017

We crossed fields

018

before reentering the wood and crossing the stream

Rich Cheshire farmland was in abundance. One farm specialised in greenhouse chrysanthemums.

024

We took our break under the shelter of a large tree

025

On our return we swung by Peover Hall.

034

The ducks there did not seem to mind the weather

028

And the rain made the lawn look fresh

035

On the path leading up to the church the rhododendron gave a great show

036

St. Lawrence Church sat timelessly

038
040

at the edge of the hall it no doubt once served

041

The sundial hinted of those times

043

but today it was particlarly useless.

The wall garden was kept from plebeian view, no hint of what lay behind the walls was shared with the passer by.

044

The main drive was viewable from the road

046

We headed back to the cars via the side of the hall

047

Bluebells were in abundance as we walked down the lane

048
