Silkstone Saunter - Oct 2016

A Silkstone Saunter, 23rd October. Leader Roy Turner.

 16 walkers met in High Street car parking Dodworth on a bright but cold October morning.

There were 9 members and 7 visitors, it was so good to see Tom and John again and also Karen and Richard. We were joined by two newbies to the LDWA; Steve (west yorks) and Kirsty joined us today so we were a merry group with lots to talk about.

It was a typical Roy's walk with lots of hills and valleys in the beautiful countryside to the West of Barnsley and just entering the Pennines.

We travelled on towards Wortley Hall, a checkpoint on our Elsecar Skelter challenge walk and then continued on using some of the Trans Pennine Trail to our lunch stop at Oxspring.

Suitably refreshed we continued on via Silkstone and back to our starting point at Dodworth. A great walk organised at the last minute by Roy as Sue was not available on the day so well done Roy.
