From the Ship to Barleigh Bridge – 25 April 2016

19 of us started out in the wet, hoping for sunny intervals – we met by the Ship Inn in Wincle.

001

We took the path over the stile almost opposite the Ship.

003

There were plenty of lambs about

002

and a very friendly donkey

006

We headed up the field

007

until we came to the farm with interesting windows

008

We took a left in front of the farm and headed down passing some gauze. You could see Bosley Cloud on the horizon.

We picked our way through a wooded path

012

passing a ruined cottage on our right

013

The mixed woodland to our right showed signs of bursting buds

015

We took our break near Barleigh Bridge, close to the start of Dane Valley way.

016

Crossing the Dane we looked up

018

and down

019

The path then followed the river

020

with fields to the right

021

until we came to the falls

023

Here we crossed the river

024

and sauntered back to our starting point

025

where lambs basked in the sun, which at last lingered for a while.
