Walk Report

Hills of the North, Tuesday 8th September 2015
10 walkers, 9 miles - leader Ron Williamson
Start 18:05 Finish 21:05
6 stalwarts from the afternoon walk were revitalised when 4 fresh pairs of legs joined us at the start.
A classic walk linking many favourite sites with wonderfully clear views over the city by both day and night.
Unfortunately the sun failed to appear at the right time, so no sunset from Parliament Hill.
The 'Plodders Revenge' was complete when our faster walkers failed to rise to the challenge and were conspicuous by their absence.
