Walk Leader: Jo Poskitt
Participants: 8
Mileage: 16 miles
Ascent: 1,287 ft
Walk Report: Andy Miller
Weather: Glorious. Warm sunshine most of the day with a lovely fresh breeze.
Today,s Walk started from Castle Howard . Our well thought out route  was of a Clockwise direction passing through many Wooded Areas ,Field Edge Paths, Well used tracks and as little Road Walking as possible. The ground conditions were dry and there were very little overgrown paths as most had been well walked and apart from a few steep ascents it was almost effortless . As this was the case the conversation flowed where many subjects were touched upon that were in the headlines. No blows were struck and no voices were raised .This was the setting for  the rest of our day. There was also an abundance of views to take in on such a clear day. 
Like a few other members today I hadn't been to this area for a long time. We must return on a regular basis.
Another great day,walking with a group who like our previous groups give 100% to make the day a success and all credit to our leader for such a memorable day.           ( A day to De Stress and Unwind )
It was also good to see a member return after an enforced break and a new member who was welcomed into the group.
