Programme 175 for June/July 2022






June 2022


Walk   1485 


Thursday  9 June    5.25 miles      Moderate/Energetic      Picnic lunch
Meet             Mathon village hall    Grid 743453 .  WR13 5NY  9.45 am for 10.00 start                (A donation of £1 per car for the village hall please.)
Contact       Jim and Margaret  01684 296773   The week before
Directions   From  West Malvern take the road, Croft Bank which is at the junction of West Malvern Rd.(B4232 ) / De Walden Rd. /Westminster Bank. Follow Croft Bank for just over  1 mile  to a junction with a signpost  at Lane End. Turn right, the road to Mathon. The village hall is almost immediately on your RHS.
Details.       The walk is through pasture and wooded countryside , good views of the area from the top of Cockshot Hill and a stop at the ancient church in Cradley.

Fourteen of us met at Mathon village hall on a day with slowly deteriorating weather. The day had started with bright sunshine but by the time we started walking it was overcast and after about twenty minutes a gentle rain started. It rained lightly on and off for the rest of the walk but not enough to get us really wet. Our route took us behind Rowburrow Wood to near the top of Cockshot Hill where we had coffee with a splendid view to the northwest over Cradley. We walked through Lambridge Hill Wood down into Cradley where we had our picnic lunch in St James' churchyard. Some of us sheltered from the rain under the lychgate and some of us under the magnificent yew tree which must be at least 500 years old. A short walk back to Mathon concluded a very scenic walk - thank you Jim and Margaret.  (Thanks also to Hugh for the report and to Margaret for her photos (an additional photo from Sylvia that I think you will like too) - SF)

Stroll       

Tuesday 14 June    2 miles but can be shortened to suit individuals
Meet        St Nicholas church, Kemerton. GL20 7HY. Grid 945375. Park alongside in road. 10.15 for 10.30 start
Contact    Lesley 07917097286  the week before
Directions    Bredon Road, straight on to Kemerton, turn right after Crown Inn by war memorial.
Details    We walk south past Kemerton Court, around and past a managed orchard.
Almost returning to the church there is then a small loop around a tiny lake.


 Lesley, our leader, gathered nine of us together at St Nicholas Church for today's stroll.  In the fine sunshine Noel spoke of St Nicholas, the patron saint of children and the historical 'Father Christmas'; the church itself full of flags and Jubilee regalia.
In first gear, Lesley led us in a loop through dense woodland, opening out to reveal a lakeland scene on one side and Upper Court and gardens on the other.  Then, along a winding wooded lane, the Old Manor with its milk churns to our left and the 'new' Court to our right complete with an Edward Rex VII  post box embedded in the wall.
A long winding green track led us eventually into the newly created Kemerton Park; its long grasses, cattle half-hidden in the lush meadows, Bredon Hill laid back beyond cried out for a Constable to immortalize it.
The final 'stretch' took us through an orchard full of traditional apple trees, before returning down the lane to St Nicholas.
Thanks go to our leader Lesley for such a green and pleasant stroll and for the photographs too!    (Thanks also to Noel for the report and to Lesley for the photos + SF)

Six of us met at Cirencester,  on a beautiful sunny morning for a walk round the Bathurst estate. 
We set off along some new paths, but soon arrived at a wide grassy walk,  where we reached a statue of Queen Anne.  We then continued along tree-lined paths towards the polo field.
We were all enjoying the warm weather and the magnificent trees on the estate.  After stopping for coffee we followed a path along the edge of fields full of barley,  with good views across the valley to Stratton.   We then turned back into the main park,  passing the Hexagon,  and reached the Beano wagon, where we stopped for snacks and ice-cream.  Walking finally back to the car park we admired the avenue of ancient limes,  and noted all the new trees which are being planted for future generations.  A lovely walk on a beautiful morning.  (Report by Christine R,  photos by Richard W  - Many thanks  -  SF)

Details    Gently undulating Cotswold countryside with 4 stiles. From Naunton we walk by the River Windrush and through the Slaughters (ice cream?) along the River Eye. Return to Naunton for a pint at the Black Horse?   (serving beer since 1870)

Ten hardy walkers met in Naunton to embark on a 8/9 mile walk. As it promised to be an extremely hot day a couple of men even wore shorts to reveal winter legs. In order to ‘warm up’ we started with an upward climb towards an impressive, newly built racing stable where it is said that Harry Redknapp’s horses are trained. This was followed by a shady, tree lined walk down towards the River Windrush. We progressed through picturesque Cotswold countryside, which attracts many overseas walkers. We chatted to folk from Canada, Holland, USA and even Peterborough! After a coffee break in the shade we walked through hay fields cut ready for baling and watched birds of prey in the clear blue sky. The Gloucester Way was joined to reach Lower Slaughter. After a welcome organic ice cream we progressed to Upper Slaughter, known as one of the ‘Thankful’ villages, as it did not lose any men in both World Wars. After lunch in the shade by the River Eye we joined Warden Way for our hot, homeward walk, encouraged by Betty's promise of a drink in the Black Horse Pub.

Thank you Graham and Betty for organising a splendid walk, with wonderful views and plenty of interesting plants to see, including spotted and bee orchids.

Directions    B 4070 south from Birdlip.  At Foston's Ash Pub left fork south for 3 miles or so along winding lane to Bisley. Looking at front of pub, its car park is behind, half right across the road.
Details    This was  the late Anne Trott's last walkover.  Ups and downs into and above various valleys:  ancient, secluded, early industrial, 'holy', and forgotten.  Ascent 700ft.  Wysis Way to Oakridge; then Far Oakridge, Waterlane, Litteridge Wood, Hayhedge Lane.  Going: generally good along paths, tracks and lanes.

Late News:   Noel advises: "Owing to summer overgrowth, oil seed rape and nettles etc, I would advise only thick skinned members to wear shorts."

17 walkers assembled outside the Bear at Bisley, which, Noel informed us, was the former Court house, on this warm, sunny morning. With varying reports of when the anticipated cloud and rain might appear,(after all, it is Glastonbury tomorrow) we set off, most choosing to chance their arm that we would get back in the dry.  And what a pleasant start too, through the lovely church yard of Bisley All Saints, through the primary school playground and then down a steep shady series of steps to the lower part of the town. Following the Wysis way to the south we soon reached the village of Bournes Green. Continuing south for a while to Oakridge Lynch we then turned east to Far Oakridge where we turned back north along the mile-long green lane for the return leg via Waterlane and nearing Battlescombe, through delightful orchid-strewn meadows, then along the "forgotten valley".back to Bisley Despite the sky clouding over the rain kept off making it a very pleasant summer walk. Many thanks to Noel for a superb, undulating walk, height gain 484ft to max elev.967ft. Noel explained at the start that the walk was in memory of sadly missed Anne Trott, who first planned it.   (Thanks to Terry for the report and his photos and to Bob W and Margaret M  for their photos too - S

*There are picnic benches by the car park or a pub in the village for lunch.

Thirteen of us set out from Bredon on a sunny morning.  We walked along a narrow footpath to Westmancote and through a ripening field of barley.  The path uphill took us to look at the King and Queen Stones in woodland below us.  (Quote from the book Bredon Hill by Brian Hoggard: “large natural outcrops of ‘gull rock’ regarded as sacred for an extremely long time.”  Our route was lined with orchids, poppies and lots of colourful wild flowers.  Coffee break was with super views and a skylark singing above.  Downhill took us to Kemerton lakes, shelter in a wood from a short shower and back across fields to Bredon.  Thank you to Eileen and Richard for this lovely walk.   (Report from Sally and photos from Tony B  - SF)

Walk  1489a     (An extra easy walk)

Wednesday 29th June.

10.15 am

Meet at the Fleet Pub in Twyning. Use the lower car park; drive past the Fleet and turn left.

This is a 3 mile walk along lanes, footpaths, and farm tracks, one track is quite overgrown so perhaps long trousers are a good idea. There are 4 stiles, all sturdy, the ground is firm and there is only one easy slope upwards. We will return along by the River Avon. We should see butterflies and hear many birds, including Curlew.

I anticipate that we will be a small group so have not booked any tables at The Fleet, but I expect that some of us will stop and have lunch there afterwards.

 Details of all walks and reports can be seen at http://home.freeuk.net/stanfagg/u3a.html
 

Walks are graded to give some idea of what to expect:

Stroll: A short walk at an easy pace with frequent stops. Warning is given about inclines or difficulties       

Easy:  Undemanding and mainly level with occasional gentle ascents or descents.  There        may be a few stiles.

Moderate:  Some uphill/downhill stretches “ uneven walking“ several stiles.

Energetic:  Some longer steep hills and rough ground  - may be many stiles.


Please book with the leader of the walk by the date given and arrive in good time before the start to boot-up and order lunch etc.  Be sure to cancel with the leader if you are subsequently unable to take part; one of the group phones will be turned on on the morning of the walk so that you can make contact in the event of a last minute delay or you become lost.
Wear suitable shoes/boots and clothing for the walk and do not over-estimate your abilities. 
An attendance fee of 50p is charged for each walk attended. 
Dogs are not allowed on walks.
Members may bring a guest but the guest must not displace a member if spaces on the walk are limited.
We usually stop for a 15-20 minute coffee-break after about an hour; so, as well as refreshments, something to sit on can be useful on wet ground.


SAFETY POLICY

Walkers

 
Carefully read the walk description to ensure that you are capable of walking the route at a moderate pace (about 2 miles per hour) without risk to health.  Remember that a short moderate walk may be more demanding than a longer easy one.

Dress sensibly.  Make sure that you have suitable clothing and footwear for the weather expected.  A walking pole or stick can be of great help.

Remember to carry any medications that you might need.  There will normally be a coffee stop so carry food, and water, especially on hot days.  It is sensible to carry a small first aid kit.  A whistle is a good way of attracting attention if you need help.

Follow instructions given by the leader.  Keep those in front and those behind you, in sight all the time.

Keep to the route indicated by the leader:  do not devise shorts cuts, etc.  If you wish to leave the walk, you must let the leader know.

Walk in single file on roads and heed any advice about crossing roads given by the leader.

Be aware of the danger from ticks and hence tick-borne diseases, particularly in the summer months and near animals. Dress appropriately, e.g. long trousers rather than shorts; trousers tucked into boots, socks or gaiters.

Each walker is ultimately responsible for carrying out a personal risk assessment for every walk they undertake.

Carry identification in case of accident:  name, date of birth, emergency contact number, doctor's number, essential medications. (ICE Card)

Carry your U3A membership card which may be checked.
 
Leaders
 
    Classify your walk as STROLL/EASY/MODERATE/ENERGETIC.  Mention any steep     climbs and stiles.

    Aim to carry out a walk-over (with your co-leader) of your proposed route not more than     two weeks beforehand.

    Consider all the points in the national U3A walk leaders risk assessment (attached below).     Take action as you consider necessary.

    Limit your walk to a maximum number that you think you can safely manage.

    Have a co-leader to act as back-marker: count the party at the start and at suitable points during the walk. The back marker needs to know the planned route in case the party gets split.

    Liaise with Sylvia Murdoch to obtain the leader's pack (contains: phone & charger, first aid kit, hi-viz vests)

    Carry the walking group first aid kit; however remember that you may not be qualified to give medical advice. However there may well be a member with medical training and experience on the walk.

    Set a pace of about 2 miles per hour plus coffee and lunch/tea stops. Indicate on walk details if lunch is to be late. Ensure that those finding the pace difficult have sufficient time to rest and recover, even if this is not favoured by more energetic members.

    Carry a map, the group mobile phone (as well as your own).  A GPS receiver is useful for pinpointing location. Switch on the group mobile phone before you leave home and keep it on until the walk is over.

    If your walk is along roads where traffic is expected, use the Group yellow vests for the leader and back-marker.  Walk in single file and face on-coming traffic except where visibility is obscured.
 
Ask for volunteers to write a report on and take photos of the walk and forward them to:     stanfagg@btinternet.com.
   
Having collected 50p from each walker, pass the money together with a note of date, walk number, number of walkers and total to Tony Barrett or Sylvia Murdoch.

General Information
 
Walkers on the email list will be sent full details of walks every other month.  If you require a paper copy of the walking programme, there is a charge of £4 p.a., payable at the Walking Group AGM or  the Enrolment Meeting.  This will be sent to you by post.

Reports on walks already done can be seen at http://home.freeuk.net/stanfagg/u3a.html
